Hakone – the gateway to Mount Fuji

Hakone is the gateway to Mount Fuji and the delights of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. This scenic small town is big on its natural hot springs and choice of traditional inns known as ryokans, many of which have been suitably updated to feature every comfort you could ever dream of.

Hakone is a town of unparalleled beauty with plenty of outdoor activities that can be tailored perfectly to your interests. But, first, we suggest you take a quick dip: no trip would be complete without dedicating time to enjoying the renowned hot springs (onsen) of this volcanic region. Your guide will be on hand to advise the best one to visit and to make sure you are up-to-speed with onsen etiquette and our favourite hot-spring tips.

Walks around the area will reveal the enigmatic grandeur of Fuji-san gradually. Japan's highest mountain, Mount Fuji majestically towers at 3,776 m, but this shy giant does need a clear day to be seen.
