What You Can Expect
Leave Tokyo behind as you travel to the stunning countryside of Hakone. After pickup by coach from Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal, depart with your guide for the Mt Fuji Visitors Center to learn about the heritage and cultural significance of this famous mountain. Spend approximately 20 minutes exploring exhibits that describe the ecological formation, weather and history of Mt Fuji and its surrounding area, and head to the 2nd-floor observatory deck for up-close views.
Afterward, take a 15-minute scenic cruise on Lake Ashi, nestled in the caldera of Mt Hakone, and see full-scale replicas of man-of-war sailing ships ferrying tourists around the lake. You'll have breathtaking photo opportunities and catch sight of Mt Fuji from every angle!
Afterward, you may use your Hakone pass to make your own way to Odawara Station by local bus or train and return to Tokyo by Shinkansen bullet train, arriving at around 8pm.
Great tour! Perfect blend of being escorted around by a guide and freedom to explore on your own. I'd recommend this to locals and visitors alike.
The tour to Hakone is a must go. The cruise around Lake Ashi is refreshing. If you are lucky you might get to see Mt Fuji. The hotel was amazing. Only do this tour if you know where you want to go by yourself in Hakone and know how to use the buses. The buses are still convenient but there will be little time for you to go to all the places in Hakone.
FYI, eateries and the shops at Hakone En next to the Prince Hotel close early. Make sure you grab dinner and souvenirs before they close. Otherwise you will have to get dinner in the hotel or walk to the closest town/shop for dinner. Buses using the free day pass retire early.
