Hakone – Ryokan and Onsen (Video) Posted by on Aug 17, 2012 in Culture

Just a few hours from Japan’s capital city of Tokyo lies the mountainous area known as Hakone. From the big city, you can take a bullet train, switch to a scenic train, and finally take a short cable car ride to get here. With such beautiful scenery, the ride is half the fun! Two of the best things you can do here are stay in a traditional Japanese ryokan (guesthouse), and go for a dip in the onsen (hot spring). Take a short tour of both in this video!

In case you missed the first two written posts about Hakone, they can be found HERE and HERE.
