For a quick getaway from Tokyo,  Hakone (箱根) is just 70 minutes by train from the city. Hakone is close enough to be a day trip but an overnight stay is best if you are seeking a brief and therapeutic escape from the big city.

Much of the area surrounding Hakone is part of a national park with spectacular views of Mt. Fuji (if the weather permit). It is a resort town that boasts a number of museums including the Hakone Open Air Museum with its Picasso exhibit.

It is fun day-trip which combines rides on several trains or buses, funicular, cable car and enjoy a cruise across the peaceful Ashino-ko lake, surrounded by natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji.

Hakone is also one of Japan’s most popular hot spring resorts, with more than a dozen springs providing hot spring water to the many bath houses and ryokan in the area and an overnight stay at a Ryokan/Onsen is recommended.

If you want to enjoy Onsen or a night in a Ryokan, please let us know.
