"The Hakone National Park is a..." Day Trip out of Tokyo Tip by AndreasK

Day Trip out of Tokyo, Tokyo: 54 reviews and 144 photos


The Hakone National Park is a beautiful area with shrines, mountains, forests and a lake at its center. <b>Hakone Shrine</b>, founded in 757, lies at the wooded shores of Lake Ashi. One of its <b>torii</b> (entrance gate) stands in the lake. The area is famous for its many hot springs (onsen); the bath tubs of most ryokans (traditional Japanese inns) are directly connected to hot springs (see my Japan page for more information on onsens and ryokans).
