The different modes of transportation is actually one of the main attractions at Hakone!
For more details on each and how you can save money, please see info on the Hakone Free Pass.
Included: Meeting at your accommodation (either in Tokyo or Hakone), full day guided tour based on a customized itinerary.
Not included: Your transportation/admission fees. The transportation fees for the guide while you are together.
*If you choose to be dropped off in Hakone, you do not need to pay the guide for his train fares to get back to Tokyo.
Notes on the itinerary: Due to volcanic activity and the small amounts of volcanic gas, persons with asthma or other respiratory problems may want to avoid the Owakudani area and the ropeway.
This is not a tour of the Fuji Five-Lakes region; note they are in a different area as Hakone. Though many bus companies offers day tours that cover both, we strongly suggest that you avoid trying to do both in a single day as you will simply spend too much time on the road.
How to book: Please contact us first to check availability. You can make the payment online or pay directly on the day of the tour.
