3 BEST THINGS TO DO ON A 1 DAY TRIP TO HAKONE

Although there are so much to do in this blissful place, if you are a busy traveller and only have a day to spare in this city of Hakone,

here are the best 3 things you could enjoy in a period of 1 day!

  1. Fly up in the sky of Hakone in a sky gondola (Hakone ropeway). This is a delight for all the nature lovers out there.
    Just beware, during the hot summer days, these boxes can get quite steamy and hot (no air conditioning inside)
    so be sure to bring some fans (manual or automatic) and plenty of water with you.

    You can even witness Mt Fuji if you`re lucky with those clouds out of the sky`s way..
    The vast ocean is also very pretty just off the lushes of green.
     
  2. Once you get off the gondolla at the base of the ropeweay, you can transit straight away onto the Pirates ship
    which takes you on a one round trip on the Lake Ashi (created in the crater of the Hakone Volcano).
    This takes approximately 50 min while stopping at 2 other destinations
    where you could hop off and explore other parts of Hakone.

    This breezy ride is trip worthwhile as you can experience Hakone from another angle, above the water and from beneath the mountain...

     
  3. After coming off the cruise on water, stop off at Owakudani  (where volcanic fumes still have a trace of the Hakone Volcano)
    on the way back on the ropeway (It is best if you buy the set all day pass for ropeway and the cruise).
    Here you get to smell the sulfurous acid gas (not that you want to) steaming out from the volcanically active mountain..
    and take some picturesque shots with the wild, golden mountain surfaces in the background.

    Last but not least, you get to put your hands on one the specialty food down here...
    the healthy volcanic eggs! which is said to add 7 years to your life!
    and don`t forget the infamous Black icecream too if you`re a sweet tooth

箱根といえば温泉だけど、

今回は温泉卵と海賊船とロープウェイの旅でした。

 

金色がかった温泉卵もブラックアイスクリームにも

美味しくて癒やされました。
