Your exciting day trip begins with pickup at selected hotels in Shinjuku, Tokyo by coach. Then relax on a scenic 2-hour transfer to Odawara located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Upon arrival, the coach will stop at Odawara Castle Park. The castle is dated back to the mid-1400s and has been rebuilt a few times. Stroll around the castle for approx. 40 to 50 minutes. If you travel in late March, you might also be able to see beautiful cherry blossoms blooming in the grounds.
Later, go to the nearby local restaurant for an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet lunch featuring Japanese, Chinese and Western style food. After lunch, you’ll be driven to Hakone for a 30-minute Lake Ashi cruise on a replica pirate ship.

Afterwards, head to the next destination - Mishima Skywalk, Japan's longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge, and stroll around for approx. 1 hour.
