Overview

Hakone is very popular for one day trip from Tokyo. We will take a Shinkansen from Tokyo to Odawara and a mountain train, a rope way and cruise Lake Ashi by the Pirate ship to enjoy its various scenery. Hakone is famous for hot spring public baths, you can try one if you want. If you are lucky, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji.

What to Expect

We will use the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Odawara which is the easiest way to visit Hakone.
It is very impressive to observe the Shinkansen passing by the station without slowing down.
After an hour ride of a mountain train enjoying the view of mountains, we will arrive at Gora park where you can try tea ceremony if you want.
Then, we will ride a rope way to visit Owakudani where you will see the volcanic activity of Hakone.
Continuing to ride the rope way, we will arrive at Lake Ashi where we will enjoy a cruising with the Pirate ship.
If we can see Mt.Fuji, I can take you to the summit of Mt.Koma by the other rope way to enjoy the best view of Mt.Fuji if you want.
You may not be able to see Mt. Fuji, due to the weather condition, but you can still enjoy the beautiful scenery of the nature.
Hakone is famous for hot spring bathes, if you want, I can take you to a nice hotel where you can use a private bath.

“ Day trip to Kamakura from Tokyo ”

Four of us had a fantastic day touring the sights of Kamakura. Yuki met us at our hotel and that helped streamline our day so we didn’t have to figure out navigating through the train stations. Yuki was very informative in regards to the history at the sights we visited. I would highly recommend Yuki as a tour guide as our day was fun and full of Japanese history. Excellent day tour with Yuki from Tokyo to Kamakura.
