"Hakone is often missed by..." Japan Off The Beaten Path Tip by CubsIn4

Japan Off The Beaten Path: 171 reviews and 231 photos

Hakone is often missed by international travelers on their way between Tokyo and Kyoto. It's a charming little town with a centuries-old castle worth the visit. It's not worth spending days here if that would mean missing out on some of Japan's more important cultural centers, but it's certainly worth a visit.
