    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 …

    ... sign we found at one junction. We never saw a monkey or another hiker after the teahouse. Since beginning the initial descent, the trail was fairly steep in areas and stairs had replaced some sections of the highway. Between the terrain and the additional weight on my back, my knees and back were starting to feel the strain. Although the hike was shorter than I anticipated, my body was content when the trail hit the main road and we quickly discovered we’d ...

    ... me. For breakfast the next morning, second verse, same as the first. More of the same. Grilled fish, orange slices, more rice and sweet egg bake. We spend the afternoon touring the open air museum. Very cool and the pictures will show you better than I can explain. After another round of trains, planes and automobiles (and that evil red train) we find the Hyatt Hakone, sit in a beautiful lobby and order cheese and wine before our trip back to ...

    ... was cool to see. Once we got off the boat we wanted to go up the rope way which is like a gondola to the top of one of the mountains surrounding the lake. The boat, tram, bus and trains were all part of a free pass that the tour company had arranged for us and it was quite handy to have. Unfortunately, because of volcanic activity, the rope way was closed so they had a bus running to the other end of it instead. Since there was two ways to get up the mountain and we ...

    Mt. Fuji: a beautiful view from all angles

    ... my time staying in the area, I must have taken over a hundred pictures of the famous mountain, each more beautiful and interesting than the last.

    Day 1:
    The first day was a wash. It took a long time to travel from Okinawa to Narita (airport near Tokyo), from Narita to Shinjuku (a major location in Tokyo), then from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko (via bus). I found the place I was staying (a small little hostel) and asked for a place to ...
