We did have a nice boat ride through the heart of Hakone though and we managed to see a couple of Torii gates on the banks amongst the colourful autumn foliage. The coach then took us back to the hotel at the end of what was quite a disappointing day. I expect it would have been beautiful under different circumstances but today the odds were certainly not in our ...
