Expose yourself in Mother Nature
Hakone is in a national park with easy access from Tokyo for a 1-day trip. It is a volcanic area where Mt Fuji is visible on very clear days. You can reach it by taking the Shinkansen Bullet Train or the limited express train. Then the mountain train, the cable car, the gondola, and the Pirate Cruising Ship take you to popular scenic places in there.
Hakone is blessed with rich nature, onsen hot springs, historical sites, and museums. These attractions would satisfy you who want to experience something special.

1. Hakone Open Air Museum with Picasso Pavilion and sculptures
2. Hakone Gora Park with a Japanese tea house
3. Hakone Check Point

We had a wonderful tour to Hakone with Eriko. She was lovely company and extremely punctual ,and well informed- We experienced all sorts of different transport from Shinkansen to funicular to cable car and of course a river cruise! The fog obscured some of the scenic features.However the experience was not dampened because of the novel experience of viewing a volcano exuding sulphuric gases and beautiful wooden marquetry! It was a memorable experience- thank you.highly recommend .
