What to Expect
Start with the mountain rail ride, the cable car, then to the rope way. You will see the spectator view of the volcanic valley(as of July 8, it is currently closed) and Mt. Fuji when the weather is friendly.
The 30 min lake Ashi boat cruise in cool lake breeze will take you to Hakone Sekisho, which is the old time travel check point with much and sad history. We walk through the cedar tree shaded old highway route 1 and learn how the people traveled back in 17th century.
Enjoy Soba(buck wheat noodles) with big shrimp Tempura lunch and go in a bus to Amazake Chaya, the old rest house of 300 years old, associated by the small museum(free).
Stop by at the Hakone Woodwork studio to see the craft master's demonstration in front of your eyes, communicating with him.
Go back to Yumoto or Odawara and get disbanded.
Please note that the local weather impacts the itinerary very much. Strong winds may force to stop all the local attractions and traffic.
