Important

◎ If you would like to move around Hakone effectively and get back to your hotel in Tokyo by 6 pm, I recommend you take the Shinkansen Bullet Train from Tokyo to Odawara because you can get to Hakone more than one hour earlier, compared with other express trains like Odakyu Line's limited express train called Romance Car. The Shinkansen Bullet Train's round-trip fare between Tokyo and Odawara is 7,480 Yen (4,000 Yen for children aged between 6 to 11)per person. From Odawara Station, your Hakone tour starts using the Hakone Fand ree Pass which costs 4,000 Yen (1,000 Yen for children aged between 6 to 11) per person. You can get on and off Hakone Mountain Train, Cable Car, Ropeway, Sightseeing Boat called Pirate Ship and Hakone Tozan Bus by the Hakone Free Pass which is valid for two days. You need to get both tickets for you and the guide.

◎ If you would like to travel slowly and less expensive, I recommend you buy the set ticket of Hakone Romance Car with the Hakone Free Pass which costs 6,230 Yen ( 2,590 Yen for children) per person. The Romance Car departs from Shinjuku Station of Tokyo and arrives at Hakone Yumoto Station, which takes about 90 minutes. You can take the same rides mentioned above.

・Public transportation fee between the nearest train station to your hotel and JR Tokyo or Shinagawa Station where the Shinkansen Train departs and arrives is not included.
・Pick-up service is limited to a place within a 15 minute walk from a station on JR Yamanote Line or inside the circle of JR Yamanote Line.
・Meals are not included, either.
・The weather in Hakone is changeable so take umbrellas or rainwears with you. And wear comfortable outfits and shoes.
