Sitting at the foot of Mount Fuji, Hakone-machi has become a popular retreat from Tokyo for locals and tourists alike.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Omuro Mountain Lift and Nihondaira Zoo. Bring the kids along to Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Natural History and Shirahama Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Hakone-machi: Oshima-machi (Faulted Strata in Oshima, Mt. Mihara, &more), Shizuoka (Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art, &more) and Ito (Sakura no Sato, Mount Omuro, &more). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic scenery at Kawazu Nanadaru Waterfalls, stroll around Onshi Hakone Park, admire the masterpieces at Hakone Museum of Art, and stroll through Arakurayama Sengen Park.
