About Hakone

Hakone is located in Kanagawa Prefecture. It is a Japanese hot spring town and health resort. Once upon a time this was a volcano. Now it is a beautiful crater surrounded by jade peaks and flowing with streams and hot springs. The scenery is magnificent beyond compare. You can take the cable car up the mountain or the electric railway. Either will give you a unique and different view of the area's beauty. Boat trips on Ashinoko Lake are a prime choice for most tourists. You not only can enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way, you can also see Mount Fuji when the weather is clear. The Ōwakudani Valley, which is full of white mists from the active sulfur vents, is also one of Hakone's landmarks. While here, make sure to have a taste of the unique Onsen Tamago black eggs.

A famous tourist attraction in Hakone, Owaku-dani Valley is the remains of a volcanic crater formed over 3,000 years ago from a volcanic eruption. It is also a major source of hot springs in Hakone. The geothermal landscape proves to be a spectacular sight, with mountain rocks laying bare against the green trees of Hakone and spewing out hot steam from between their cracks. Visitors can overlook the remains of the crater that is shrouded in a white mist, from which it is also possible to see the beautiful scenery of Mount Fuji and the mountains of Hakone. You can also try the regional specialty of black eggs.

The lake itself is set off against the backdrop of Mount Fuji, with the scenery changing with each season. Trails around the lake are surrounded by beautiful, green cedar trees, while a boat cruise on the lake is an essential pleasure for many visitors. The lake is home to many black bass and trout, and a large number of Japanese often come here to go boating, fishing, and swimming.

Art Gallery
The Venetian Glass Museum is located in the middle of the Hakone mountains. The main building resembles a European medieval villa, giving it an almost fairytale-like appearance. Galleries, shops, and cafes are spread across a vast garden. The museum exhibits Venetian glassware, once an obsession of the European aristocracy, along with many valuable works such as the famous Cobalt Blue Goblets passed down by the Rothschild family.

When traveling in Tokyo, instead of just going to the classic landmarks inside this metropolitan city, you can also consider nearby attractions, including cities, historic sites, scenic spots, and hot springs. The traffic is much lighter in the Kanto region, and it only takes you 1-2 hours by JR to get to many nearby cities. If you go to Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and other nearby cities, there is a traffic ticket package that comes with a discount.
