About Hakone

Hakone is located in Kanagawa Prefecture. It is a Japanese hot spring town and health resort. Once upon a time this was a volcano. Now it is a beautiful crater surrounded by jade peaks and flowing with streams and hot springs. The scenery is magnificent beyond compare. You can take the cable car up the mountain or the electric railway. Either will give you a unique and different view of the area's beauty. Boat trips on Ashinoko Lake are a prime choice for most tourists. You not only can enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way, you can also see Mount Fuji when the weather is clear. The Ōwakudani Valley, which is full of white mists from the active sulfur vents, is also one of Hakone's landmarks. While here, make sure to have a taste of the unique Onsen Tamago black eggs.
