Wedged between Mount Fuji and the Izu Peninsula, Hakone lies within the crater of an extinct volcano, boasting a wealth of hot-spring resorts and a beautiful mountain lake.
12 miles in circumference, Lake Ashi was formed some 400,000 years ago. The reflection of Mount Fuji, through the pines, makes a perfect souvenir photograph. Relax and enjoy the scenery during a short boat cruise on the Lake.
Take a ride in a cable-car, known as the Hakone Ropeway. Enjoy breathtaking views as you travel up to the ‘Valley of Hell’. On clear days, this area offers some of the best views of Mount Fuji whose perfectly symmetrical cone, Japan’s highest peak, is the most instantly recognisable symbol of the country.
A western-style lunch will be served during your tour.
