Introducing Hakone

If you only have a day or two outside Tokyo, Hakone can give you almost everything you could desire from the Japanese countryside – spectacular mountain scenery crowned by Mt Fuji, onsen and traditional inns. It's also home to world-class art museums. Ashino-ko is in the centre of it all and provides the foreground for the iconic image of Mt Fuji with the torii gate of the Hakone-jinja rising from the lake.

During holidays, Hakone can be quite busy and feel highly packaged. To beat the crowds, plan your trip during the week. For more information, try www.hakone.or.jp/english.
