What We Love About Hakone

Hakone is one of the most popular areas in Japan’s Kanagawa Prefecture. It’s famous for its many onsets (hot springs) and scenic spots where you can view the legendary Mount Fuji. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, then this town is an ideal destination where you can relax. You can go for a hike up Ōwakudani, a geothermal valley where you can find different kinds of hot springs and delight in its famous black egg snacks. There’s even a pirate ship you can board to cruise along the majestic Lake Ashi, where you can see a famous Shinto shrine with a red torii gate.
