Day 1: Tokyo to Hakone

In the morning, you will rendezvous with your private tour guide in the hotel lobby. From there, you’ll head to the train station and take the “Romance Car” express train to Hakone. Whether it is romantic or not is up to you, but its large glass windows will certainly afford you some nice views on the way! 

After arriving in Hakone, you’ll transfer on to the Hakone Tozan Railway, Japan’s oldest mountain railway, which is a blast for railway fans and regular folks alike due to its switchback design.

From there, the views and transportation modes just get better and better, as we ride the Hakone Tozan Cable Car to the Hakone Ropeway, where we alight on to Lake Ashi, from where we take a cruise across the lake. It may seems like a lot of transportation hopping, but it is actually quite leisurely.

Tonight you will stay overnight at a traditional Japanese inn (ryokan). Your room will allow for spacious relaxation, and feature a beautiful mountain view and your very own, private onsen (natural hot spring bath).

Suggested Ryokan: Gorakadan, Taiseikan

Day 2: Hakone to Tokyo

After checking out of Gora Kadan, you’ll visit Hakone museum, then have the pleasure of sipping green tea while gazing upon a beautiful Japanese garden.

After some sightseeing, you will be taken to Odawara Station, from where you will board a Shinkansen bullet train back to Tokyo.
