Within two hours away from Tokyo by train, we arrive at one of Japan’s best-known tourist areas. We will take either a Shinkansen from Tokyo or the Odakyu Limited Express train from Shinjuku to Hakone. At Hakone you can enjoy various rides including the ropeway, cable car, and cruise ship. Hakone is a great place to explore history, culture and the beauty of nature throughout the year.

What to Expect

Hakone is one of the most popular destinations among Japanese and international tourists looking for a break from Tokyo. In this tour, we will enjoy the view of Hakone from different viewpoints: from the sky-high gondola of the Hakone Ropeway, the Hakone Sightseeing Cruise ship, and from the Hakone Tozan Railway. We will also explore the history of Hakone by visiting the Hakone Checkpoint, Hakone Shrine and walking through a cedar tree avenue along the historic Tokaido Road.
This is an example itinerary of the tour. However, arrangements are possible according to your requests. Please let me know in advance of any specific requests.

“ Nagano Tailored Tour ”

Takeshi was an excellent tour guide and gave great suggestions for my family. We took his suggestion to try open-fires oyaki and sake tasting. He was kind and flexible and provided great insight to Japan’s history and culture. We would not been able to cover so many places, and have an awesome day without his help.


Thank you for your good review. I am glad I could show you the snowy path to the park. Takeshi
