Enjoy Your Private Tour from Tokyo

Hakone is a popular hot-spring town located near Mt. Fuji, about 100 km south-west from Tokyo. There are many spectacular spots including Oowakudani (Great boiling valley) and Lake Ashi surrounded by beautiful mountains.

Through this tour, you will enjoy panoramic views from a pirate boat on Lake Ashi and fantastic rope-way. We also visit a historical site called "Hakone Sekisho" which is a historic checkpoint on a main transport route to and from Tokyo. Today, you can experience the history from this well restored facility.

We will take the Shinkansen train which runs about 250 Km/h from Tokyo to Odawara that is an entrance town to Hakone. It takes only half an hour. So, this is the fastest and the most comfortable way to get to Hakone.
