Not to mention, on a lucky day, visitors can get a perfect glimpse of Mount Fuji from afar. Perhaps most strikingly, Hakone is heaps quieter, which is why even locals come here for a respite from the busy city on weekends.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun 250-0522 Kanagawa Prefecture

There is grand torii gate usually the starting point for everyone’s Hakone itinerary. This famous “floating” gate isn’t even the actual shrine! The actual Hakone shrine complex behind it is huge — with flights upon flights of stairs to boot — so if you’re only doing one day trip you may be better off giving the shrine a miss. Otherwise, exploring the whole complex could easily take you two hours or more.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Lake Ashinoko, Hakone, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun 250-0521 Kanagawa Prefecture

Taking the sightseeing cruise in Lake Ashi is like covering two of Hakone’s iconic attractions in one. Cruise along Lake Ashi in this Disney-esque pirate ship from Moto-Hakone Boat Pier to Togendai-ko Station — with a new ship joining the lineup!

In addition to the Vasa, Victory and Royal II ships, the 541-seater Queen Ashinoko has started its service from 25 April 2019. What’s unique about this ship is its floor-to-ceiling wooden interior and a gold-painted hull, giving off a majestic glow that reflects against the water surface. Basically Pirates of the Caribbean, but 100 times fancier.
The cruise passes by the famous torii gates at Hakone shrine on the way, and on lucky days you may even see Mount Fuji in the background.
The sightseeing boats leave about 1–2 times an hour
Cost: ¥1,000/person (one way)

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The Hakone Open-Air Museum, 1121 Ninotaira, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun 250-0493 Kanagawa Prefecture

The Hakone Open Air Museum is Japan’s first ever outdoor art museum of any sort, and experienced Japan travellers might liken this to Niigata’s Echigo-Tsumari Art Field with a similar concept where artworks are surrounded by mountains and nature.

This 70,000 square metre space houses over 100 modern and contemporary pieces, as well as an indoor exhibition selected from 300 of Picasso’s collection! Perhaps the centrepiece of it all is the Symphonic Sculpture by Gabriel Loire (pictured above) that’s actually a spiral staircase within a stained glass column, leading to an observatory on top with panoramic views of the park and mountains.

Entrance Fee: ¥1,600
Opening Hours: 9AM – 5PM (Last entry 4:30PM)

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Arakurayama Sengen Park, 3353-1 Arakura, Fujiyoshida 403-0011 Yamanashi Prefecture

Temple and park with many stairs and different stages leads to exotic and mindblowing view of Mt Fuji at the top. The paragon at the top is very famous for viewing and picture taking point.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Owaku-dani Valley, 1251 Sengokuhara, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun 250-0631 Kanagawa Prefecture

Another possible Mount Fuji viewpoint on a clear day, this picturesque volcanic valley looks better than it smells — no thanks to the sulphuric gases that emit from the hot spring pools (okay, fine, they don’t actually smell so bad)!

Interestingly, Owakudani is known for cooking eggs in these sulphuric pools which turn their shells black — still safe to eat though! In fact, eating each egg supposedly adds seven years to your life. That just might be the secret to the Japanese’s longevity.
There’s also a hiking path that leads up Mount Kamiyama, although it’s currently closed due to strong volcanic gasses.

Opening Hours: ~9AM – 5PM (depends on operation hours of the Hakone Ropeway

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Gora Park, 1300 Gora, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun 250-0408 Kanagawa Prefecture

Gora Park is just any other park — besides its distinctive French-styled landscape with two huge greenhouses housing seasonal flowers, most visitors come here to take part in indoor activities instead!

We’re talking cool stuff like glass blowing (to make your own glass or bowl for ¥3,800), sandblasting (¥2,100), and even pottery painting opening in April 2019. The best part is that if you won’t be hanging around long enough to collect it in person, they’ll ship it to your home! Talk about a real nifty souvenir.
