Hakone in a national park has an easy access from Tokyo for a 1-day trip. It is a volcanic area where you can see Mt Fuji on a very clear day and experience Japanese culture, history and great nature using a mountain train, a cable car, ropeways, a cruising ship and a bus. It has quite a different atmosphere from central Tokyo's.
Please select one by one from A and D in the highlights below.

What to Expect

You can explore Hakone by using Hakone Free Pass that allows you to use almost all the transportation, and also give some discounts at shops and museums in that area. Hakone has quite a different atmosphere from central Tokyo's, so you can expose yourself in rich nature. If you stay over night there, you can enjoy onsen hot spring after this tour.

Weekdays are recommendable to avoid the crowds.

1: Hakone is a risky area to go through because it is easily affected by conditions of the weather and sulfur gas. There are some things to note as follows.

a)The Owakudani Ropeway and Pirate Ship are sometimes suspended. When they are suspended, we have to get in bus or taxi instead.

b) Pregnant women and people who have some problems with the heart or the lungs are not allowed to take Owakudani Ropeway due to sulfur gas.

c) The temperature of Hakone is always lower than that of Tokyo. Please bring your jacket and umbrella, and wear comfortable shoes.

2: If you don't use the JR Pass, I will make a custom tour. Please feel free to contact me. read more

“ Excellent Experience with Eriko ”

Our group of four were treated to a wonderful day in Tokyo with Eriko. Eriko has great English skills and her genuine interest in the city really made our day. We will be back next year with a bigger group and we will definitely book Erico. Thank you so much Erico you were awesome.


Thank you very much for a great review! You are a group of humorous people, so I myself enjoyed the tour and being with you. It’s a nice memory and I really hope to see you again next autumn. Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Hurrah! All Black!!!

“ 40th Reunion with ERIKO as our guide ”

ERIKO made our 1 day Tokyo tour THE highlight of our Japan trip. She planned out the day efficiently with the sites we wanted to see, using different modes of transportation, as well as added her own touches to make it a special day. We were meeting 2 Japanese friends, that we haven't seen for 40 years.... She communicated well with all of us, and was an active part of the conversation and activities of the day. She had great visual aids. And selected a perfect lunch venue to eat Japanese pancake. The only way to describe our day was WONDERFUL!! We would definitely recommend ERIKO. AND we would definitely hire her again if we get back to Tokyo. The Morton's from Nebraska, USA

“ Knowledgable and Friendly Guide ”

We booked Eriko for a couple of tours whilst in Tokyo and found it to be one of the best decisions we made. Not only very knowledgeable providing interesting information on the places visited but also a very friendly lady who listens to what the client wishes out of the chosen tour. We highly recommend Eriko to anyone looking for a competent guide who speaks good English. Book ahead to ensure you can acquire Eriko's Tour Guide Services. Thank you Eriko for our time together in Tokyo.


Hi Gary and Leith, Thank you so much for a great review. We enjoyed some off the beaten tracks in Tokyo and Hakone, I really enjoyed the tours with you, which are unforgettable memories and valuable guiding experiences. I hope to see you and have Katsudon again some day! Please take a good care!! Eriko

“ Great tour guide to interesting locations ”

My son and I enjoyed a great day with Eriko. We had already spent guided day previously in Tokyo so we had seen some of the sights already. Eriko responded beautifully and developed a schedule on the spot that lead to a very interesting and enjoyable day. Thank you Eriko for your expert guiding from Glenn and Oscar!


Hi Glenn, Thank you very much for a great review. Before your Tokyo tour, you experienced a lot of adventures in other areas, but you seemed to enjoy other aspects of Japan. I was glad to help you to explore Tokyo. Hope this tour became a good memory of your trip. Thank you again. Eriko
