    Hakone is one of the most popular inland tourist resorts in Japan. Wedged between Mount Fuji and the Izu Peninsula, it is a large region encircled by several forested mountains and has a beauty dramatically accented by deep glens and ravines. In the feudal era, Hakone was a very important checkpoint that safeguarded the security of Edo (now Tokyo) as the seat of the Shogunate.
    Hakone is a very big region. You will probably need to spend a day or two here to complete the region. The hot-springs is very good here. Due to time contraints I only managed to take a short cruise at LAKE ASHI and take a cable car ride to MOUNT KOMAGATAKE
