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.

Important

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 instead.
b) Pregnant women and people who have some allergy to circulatory organ 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: This tour is for travelers who take Odakyu Romance Car Train. When you travel using the JR Pass, please let me know. I will create a customized tour for you. read more

“ 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!
