Hakone is one of the most beautiful day trips you can take from Tokyo. It’s only a short 2-hour train ride away and transports you from the out of the metal metropolis of the city, into the lush green landscape of the Japanese countryside. Hakone is famous for their hot spring onsens, stunning view of Mount Fuji across Lake Ashinoko and unparalleled natural scenery.
It seemed as soon as we arrived in Tokyo, it was time to leave and continue on our journey through Japan. We were incredibly sad to leave, there were so many things we had yet to do and see but it was time, and we knew we would come back one day. So with luggage in tow, we headed off to the last of our Tokyo destinations; Tokyo Station. Tokyo Station, located beside the Imperial Palace, is where you'll get on the high-speed Shinkansen trains but the busy station also sees well over 3,000 inner city trains every day. Despite this overwhelming number, it is only the fifth-busiest station in Eastern Japan.
