    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.

    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! …

    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. …

    ... 80 degrees and then steamed at 100 degrees. The eggs will give you good health and fertility. I couldn’t stomach a black egg with the sulphur smell in the air and yesterday’s dinner still stretching my stomach. However, I did try the black egg soft serve that actually was quite nice.

    Back at the hotel our room had an open air onsen spa that we enjoyed while drinking Gin and Tonic. The ...

    Here the hot springs, erupting geysers and bubbling pools of boiling mud dominate a fascinating landscape. We take the Hakone rope way from Sounzan down to Togendai on lake Ashinoko. We take a boat journey around the lake which is a water filled volcanic crater with a circumference of 18K. We are now making our way to Tokyo by ...

    ... of the mountain. Far earlier than planned we set off for Hakone and had some lunch before going up the Hakone sky gondola to the Owakudani Valley. Here we went for a walk up to where the geothermal activity was taking place so we could see the sulphur clouds hard boiling eggs and turning them black. It reminded me a lot of Rotorua in New Zealand. We descended back down the mountain on the coach ready to get on our pirate boat across Lake Ashi. From here you ...
