      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! …

      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. …

      A poorly planned trip to Mt Fuji.

      ... mountains with big eyes and a smiling mouth. My greatest regret of the day is that I didn't get my camera out in time to take a snap!  Once I got to Kawaguchiko I caught a taxi to my hotel. When I had booked the hotel online I saw lots of reviews with words like "fantastic views" and "great service". So I booked it. No brainer, right? When we were driving up the driveway I noticed that the sign for my hotel also said "romantic resort". I immediately ...

      Saving the JR Pass

      Today we are travelled to Hakone by speed train. We had been saving our JR pass for the longer transits from Tokyo to Hakone and Hakone to Kyoto, only to find out that we could not use our JR pass all the way to Hakone, even though this was a little disappointing, we soon got over this frustration as the train fare was minimal and time difference only half an hour. The train trip we did have was very ...

      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 ...
