    A traditional Japanese hotel with nice big rooms. Good view outside the balcony. Has its own hot spring in the basement. Good dinner in the hotel. A little remote.

    Traditional ryokan experience

    Nice ryokan in the Hankone Mountains. Be prepared to wear slippers during your visit and even a Yukata. The lobby bar, and the entire ryokan for that matter, was a bit dated, but they had karaoke and a good selection of drinks. The hot springs bath in the basement was pretty good, but they also had several massage chairs to use before or after your bath. That was enjoyable. The food was really good and there was a convenient store right next door that opened at 7am. Beds were futons that were prepared by the housekeeper each day.

    We left the hotel to drive up partway to Mt Fuji. No sooner than leaving Tokyo, we were caught up in a traffic jam for the next 30 minutes. It was rather foggy when we got to around the mountain. We were lucky to be able to see the mountain some of the time. We had a French bistro kind of lunch in a small café. We pretty much occupied the entire …

    Mt. Fuji on a very rainy day

    On our way outside of Tokyo to the mountains of Hakone, we visit the entrance of the Imperial Palace. Unfortunately, the day is very rainy and cloudy and we had to get a bit wet walking to the entrance. The only thing we see is a moat and a bridge that leads to the palace that we can't see in the distance. Not sure this was worth getting wet for! …

    Awesome day in Hakone Mountains

    After a very traditional Japanese breakfast we drive to Gora Station and take a gondola ride across the Hakone Mountain crater to Owakudani. That's the site of the last volcanic eruption in Hakone 4,000 years ago. Off in the distance we see Mount Fuji! The skies today are still grey and we have some light rain, but at least we can see the top. …

    Kyoto and Osaka

    We are excited to be in Kyoto now. Kyoto used to be Japan's capital ( for over a thousand years) before Tokyo became capital in 1869. So there is so much culture and history here. Kyoto was a contender for the atomic bomb drop, however the only reason it didn't get chosen was because one of the American decision makers had had his honeymoon here and said Kyoto was a rich cultural center and not to bomb it! Kyoto was thus saved. ...

    Mt. Fuji is Right There, Honest!!!

    We decided to take a Viator tour (run by Sunshine Tours, Tokyo CIty Tours, Hatobus company) to see Mount Fuji. We were supposed to visit two observation stations on the mountain, have lunch, do a lake cruise, take a cable car to get a view of the mountain and take the bullet train back to Tokyo.

    The trip was a complete and total wash - pretty much literally. Heavy rain was forecast all day. After a 2 hour bus ride to get to the mountain, we found out that ...
