Day 3
Tokyo to Hakone
This morning you will take the short train journey to Hakone. Set in the mountainous countryside south of Mount Fuji, Hakone is famed for its onsen houses, where you can relax in the natural hot spring waters. The region is crisscrossed by ropeways, cable cars and funicular railways, from which you can enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. You'll start your explorations with visits to Mt Fuji's World Heritage sites. Later after checking into your traditional Japanese hotel, you'll change into a yukata and slippers and savour a sumptuous dinner. You'll be able to enjoy the onsite onsen and tonight you'll sleep in a tatami-floored room, on a futon mattress.
