Hakone: Famous for hot springs & the view of nearby Mt. Fuji.


Hakone is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, less than 100 kilometers from Tokyo. Famous for hot springs, outdoor activities, natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji, Hakone is one of the most popular destinations among Japanese and international tourists looking for a break from Tokyo.

Hakone Hot springs
Hakone has been one of Japan's most popular hot spring resorts for centuries. Nowadays, more than a dozen springs provide hot spring water to the many bath houses and ryokan in the Hakone region.
Visitors can enjoy a hot spring bath in a public bath house or ryokan, and many ryokan open their baths not only to staying guests but also to daytime visitors. While staying guests can use the baths for free, daytime visitors pay an admission fee of typically between 500 and 2000 yen.

Public Bath House ? popular hot springs for one-day trip.
Collection of nicely done hot spring pools, most of which are outdoors at the foot of a wooded slope. The bath house is a beautiful traditional Japanese style building.

Lake Ashinoko
Lake Ashi (Japanese: Ashinoko) with Mount Fuji in the background is the symbol of Hakone. A boat cruise from one end of the lake to the other takes roughly 30 minutes and costs 970 yen. The Hakone Free Pass is valid on the pirate ship shaped Hakone Sightseeing Boats but not on boats operated by Izuhakone.

Owakudani is the area around a crater created during the last eruption of Mount Hakone some 3000 years ago. Today, much of the area is an active volcanic zone where sulfurous fumes, hot springs and hot rivers can be experienced. “Black eggs” boiled by geothermal heat are sold there. It is said that you can live 7 years longer by eating one egg.

Hakone Tozan Railway

A ride on the Hakone Tozan Railway, Japan's oldest mountain railway, is a treat for more than just railway fans. The small trains wind themselves through a narrow, densely wooded valley over many bridges and tunnels, stopping at small stations along the way and changing directions at three switchbacks.

Hakone Shrine

Hakone Shrine stands at the foot of Mount Hakone along the shores of Lake Ashi. The shrine buildings are hidden in the dense forest, but are well advertised by its huge torii gates, one standing prominently in the lake and two others over the main street of Moto-Hakone.
  Open Air Museum

The Hakone Open Air Museum (Japanese: Hakone Chokoku No Mori Bijutsukan), successfully attempts to create a harmonic balance of nature and art by exhibiting various sculptures on its spacious grounds in combination with beautiful views of the surrounding valley and mountains.

Mt. Takao: The "Michelin" three-star winning mountain in Japan.

Mt. Takao is located within the municipal boundaries of Hachioji City, Tokyo, in the southeastern part of the Kanto uplands. Because it is only about 50 km from central Tokyo, you have enough time to get there, enjoy a leisurely hike in the highlands, and return to the city the same day.

Elevation: 599 meters. This region is located on the natural boundary between Japan's subtropical and temperate forests, so trees and other plants typical of both types of woodland are present. Mt. Takao is known as an Eden of wildlife and natural vegetation.

Walk along trails under huge cedar trees hundreds of years old...
Ride the cable car or chair lift from the foot of the mountain. Or you can do the entire climb on a good hiking trail. Time to the summit: about one and a half hours.

The view from the summit is fantastic, and when the weather is right you can see Mt. Fuji clearly. Come to Mt. Takao for a day of fun and relaxation.

Yakuoin Temple

The Buddhist temple on Mount Takao is formally known as Takao-san Yakuo-in Yuki-ji, and most commonly as Yakuo-in. It was established in 744 on the orders of Emperor Shomu as a base for Buddhism in eastern Japan and its founder was Gyoki, a charismatic priest closely associated with the erection of the Great Buddha at Todai-ji Temple in Nara.
Beer Garden "Beer Mount"

The observation deck near the cable car's Takaosan Station becomes a beer garden from June to mid-September.
