    TAKING THE SPEED TRAIN FROM HAKONE

    by AusPinay Updated Apr 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took the speed train from Hakone as we wanted to experience riding the bullet train or shinkansen and we were glad we did!

    The speed train is awesome, especially when we were waiting to ride one. We tried to take photos as it sped past us!It was part of the day trip - more expensive than returning to Tokyo by train but it is worth it for the sheer experience alone! At least we can say we rode in a bullet train in Japan even if it took only around 40 minutes! We wished we could have traveled longer on one!

  • Finding the station

    Don't forget to take a plan of where the ticket office is in the station - it's in Shinjuku station for the 3 day pass and it's outside the Odyaku department store.

    Don't end up walking around the station for 2 hours, tired and jetlagged like I did, it was terrible!!!! Nearly killed my boyfriend and the well meaning japanese people who wrongly directed us several times!!!

    Hakone Free Pass gives you all of Hakone

    by aukahkay Written Feb 6, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hakone Free Pass is an all-inclusive 2-day pass that includes return ticket from/to Shinjuku station. All modes of transport operated by Odakyu Group, including Lake Ashi sightseeing ships, Hakone Ropeway and Hakone-Tozan Railway are included in the pass. The pass costs Y4700 and is valid on weekdays. I took the Odakyu line from Shinjuku station to Hakone-Yumoto, a journey that took about 70 minutes. From Hakone-Yumoto, a 20-minute bus ride on the Tozan Bus brought me to Togendai. Along the way, I passed by various hotels and ryokans, all offering onsens. The Hakone Ropeway was closed on that cold winter day so I decided to go on the Lake Ashi boat. The boat took me from Togendai to Hakonemachi. From Hakonemachi, another bus took me back to Hakone-Yumoto where I caught the return train back to Shinjuku - all in a day's trip.

    Ferry ride on Ashinoko

    Get the pass which allows you to use the buses around Hakone, gondola and ferry at Lake Ashi. You can buy it at the tourist information office around Moto Hakone station.

    It's much more convenient and allows you to backtrack on places you want to visit over and over again.

    The ferry plying Lake Ashi stops at a few villages, from where there are numerous sights of interest.

    Our ride back to Tokyo was on the shinkansen, and what a treat it was. The ride was luxurious inside and out.

    Awesome, fast, efficient shinakansen
