Tour description

Odawara is known for its scenic beauty embracing both mountains and the sea, and is also the entrance into Hakone. It is accessible by regular train from Tokyo, Shinjuku, and Shibuya by train without transit, as well by the Shinkansen or the Bullet Train. The highlight of Odawara is Odawara Castle, one of the largest castles from the Sengoku Period. It was said to be invincible, withstanding invasions and thwarted the efforts to unify Japan. At Odawara Castle you can dress as a Samurai and take photos with the castle in the background, while feeling a sense of Bushido, the Samurai chivalry. The panorama from the castle tower is something impossible see in Tokyo. Odawara is full of unique contents that central Tokyo does not offer, such as its rich nature and lingering sense of once-prosperous castle town. If you are headed to Hakone, you will not want to miss stopping at Odawara.
