Hakone Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
Set amid beautiful mountains and located less than 100 kms (62 miles) west of Tokyo in Kanagawa Prefecture, Hakone is situated within the volcanically-active Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.
Centered amidst Lake Ashi (or Lake Ashinoko), Hakone is famous for its hot spring resort region, attracting many Japanese and international visitors on a Japan vacation, due to its proximity to Tokyo as well as Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776 metres (12,389 ft.).
Hakone offers a cable car ride up to Mt Komagatake, the best site for providing magnificent views of Mount Fiji and Lake Ashi. As well, Hakone offers various boat cruises along Lake Ashi and hikes through natural surroundings.
Situated on the shores of Lake Ashi is Hakone Gongen. This Shinto shrine features smaller shrines within its grounds as well as a small museum displaying the shrine’s treasures, of which five are ranked as national Important Cultural Property.
Hakone features two major art museums. Hakone Open Air Museum exhibits western and Japanese sculptures of the 19th and 20th century within a park like setting. Pola Museum of Art opened its doors in 2002, and houses a collection of over 9500 pieces featuring a diverse array of genres and periods, both European and Japanese.
With its natural setting, Hakone is a perfect stopover when visiting Tokyo, offering culture, relaxation, and breathtaking views on Japan tours.
