Only stayed one night but got great views of the geothermal area and Mount Fuji. The Hakone Freeway pass was well worth it for the amazing trains and cable cars. We were very lucky with the weather but the train and geothermal area would have been great regardless.

Don't go during winter when daylight is short and more prone to cloudy and rainy days. Impossible to see Mt Fuji which was the main highlight. The shops and public transport eg ropeway, cable cars were closed early too, thus nothing much to do but to return early to ryok ... Show more an. Show less

Because of the amount of time it takes to get there by bus from Odarawa, I would stay 2 nights in Hakone!

Hakone has so many things to see and do. Best thing to is to get a Hakone free pass, it will save you dollars. Then do a round trip around Hakone stopping where you like. You can get nice view of Mt Fuji and the onsens are the best.

Although on public transport and at times unsure what to do- staff very helpful and reassuring. Fun travelling on the trains, cable cars and Ropeway!

Recommended in Hakone

Buy the Hakone Freepass which includes trains, rack railway, buses, cable car, ropeway (gondola) and pirate ship ride to explore the lake and mountain region. If you are lucky, you will see stunning Mt Fuji from the ropeway.

Timing is all. Avoid holidays and other crowded days. Choose days with a high probability of seeing Mount Fuji. Fall and springtime when warm are when you should visit.

Hakone is well worth a visit. However do your homework and take English language travel brochures, bus map etc with you.

The number of choices and the splendor of the outdoor museum with extra exhibitions was surprising.

rent a car. its better to move about in hakone. the public transport is always full.

weather and open air museum is such a great combination....

Massages are excellent and great value.
