Hakone is only approx. 50 minutes from Tokyo and the town is based around Lake Ashi where you can enjoy a cruise with Mt Fuji in the background.
The other major attractions that need to be seen and experienced are the Hakone Ropeway, Komagatake Ropeway, and even the Pirate ship on Lake Ashi. All offering amazing views of Mt Fuji. See a bit of Japanese History and Culture in the likes of Hakone Shrine and Kuryuzu Shrine. These 2 locations have a deep connection with each other. You also have the Open Air Museum, and just 30 minutes away you can be at the longest Suspension bridge in Japan, the Mishimi Skywalk with an amazing Mt Fuji Background.
No matter what season you venture to Hakone, there is always something that will take your breath away. Late March/April will show you the Cherry blossoms and believe us, Gora Park is just one of the most amazing locations you can imagine. Winter offers snow backgrounds, Summer offers the fresh new and bold green colors, and who needs to mention the Autumn when the whole of Japan turns from Green to yellow, and then to orange and red. Here you can really immerse yourself in the natural envirnment of Japan.
