Daily Itinerary

  • Start
  • Day 1: Tokyo-Hakone and Mt. Fuji

    Leave the bustle of Tokyo for the 2 hour journey to Hakone. Hakone, the gateway to Mt. Fuji, is centered on the collapsed remains of a huge volcano and is famous for its onsen or natural hot springs. Your afternoon is free to explore. We recommend a visit to the Hakone Open Air Museum, where a huge selection of sculptures are complemented by the natural beauty of the area; including works by the English sculptor Henry Moore. The museum also has indoor galleries and a sizable Picasso Collection.

    Tonight you’ll stay in a traditional Japanese ryokan. This charming accommodation includes tatami mat floors and traditional roll-out futons, as well as rice paper sliding doors and onsen baths.

    In the evening, indulge Japanese style as kimono clad waitresses serve you a kaiseki, a beautifully presented meal consisting of many small courses. Relax in your yukata (cotton robe) and enjoy an after dinner soak in your onsen.

  • Day 2: Hakone and Mt Fuji

    Explore the area’s national park with your Transport Pass (included). Take the world’s second largest cable-car journey up Mt Owakudani and walk around its other-worldly landscape filled with bubbling, sulphurous pools. The famous ‘black eggs’ here are boiled in the pools and it is said that eating one will add seven years to your life.

    Walk down to the pier to board a replica pirate ship which will take you across Lake Ashinoko, formed by a volcanic eruption 3000 years ago. Your next form of transport is the Hakone Tozan Switchback Train, which ascends and descends the mountain by zigzagging back and forth across its face, giving you excellent views of the surrounding valleys.

    Hakone offers other options as well, including a great hike along the Old Tokkaido Highway and the Hakone Checkpoint Museum. We can advise you on anything you wish to do and provide you with all the information you need.

    Enjoy another fine meal and onsen at your ryokan tonight.
