Hi, I’m currently planing a trip to Hakone as one of the place to visit during my visit to japan…

Here is the general plan layout…

-Yunessu
–Take HakoneTozan Bus (bus stop no.2) or Izu-Hakone Bus (bus stop no.1) to Kowaki En bus stop.
–Walk uphill from Kowaki En bus stop to reach Yunessun.
–Adult pass 2900 yen.

-Hakone Ropeway
–Take HakoneTozan Bus from Kowaki En Bus stop to Gora Station
–Take HakoneTozan Bus (Bus stop No.2) to Gora Park
–Lunch at Ito Dining (have to reach before 2pm)
–Lunch at Cafe Pic (backup)
–Tea at Hakudo in Gora Park

Hi Calvin,

Sounds like a fun day out! I am not 100% sure, but I think the Lake Ashi cruises take you to Hakone-machi or Moto-Hakone, where you can hop onto a Hakone Tozan bus back to Hakone-Yumoto or Odawara - and then take the train back to Tokyo.

Again, I am not sure - so please double check - but I think that you could also take the Hakone Tozan bus from Togendai Station back to Hakone-Yumoto or Odawara.

Hope that helps! :slight_smile:
