Hakone is the attractive destination for one-day tour because of its easy access from Tokyo, many hot-spring resorts, and abundant natural beauty including a view of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi. And it's also been a sacred religious site for mountain worship since ancient time. In this tour, we’ll visit three must-see spots in Hakone: Lake Ashi, Owakudani Valley, and Hakone Open-Air Museum. They will be a wonderful memory for you in Japan.

Hakone Tour Reviews

Magnificent Mt.Fuji

Thank you Turo for a wonderful day in Hakone. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. Your command of the Japan public transportation systems helped save time so that we could see and do everything we wanted. The family loved the lunch place you took us and my son especially enjoyed the open air museum. You have vast knowledge of the area and we enjoyed learning the history. Thank you and we hope to see you again.

Dipa P.

Hi Dipa, thank you very much for your warm comment and high rating on the tour. The day was really blessed with a good chance : magnificent views of Mt. Fuji, cherry blossoms and various flowers in full bloom. I'm also happy to hear Deven and Rayna enjoyed the Openair Museum. I hope you'll have another good chance during your travel and go home with many happy memories in Japan.

Lovely day in Hakone!

Toru was a great guide. The tour to Hakone was a lovely day out. We very much enjoyed the sites. He was also very helpful with giving us travel advice and sending our luggage to our next destination. Thank you!

Kelly Z.

Thank you very much for your review and high rating of Hakone Tour. I'm also glad to be able to tour with you. I'm sure you're enjoying the cherry blossoms in full bloom in Kyoto by now. I hope you continue to enjoy your journey and return home with happy memories of your time in Japan.

A truly wonderful guide

Toru-san is an extra special guide, and the Hake Private Tour is extra special. Toru-san has the best English skills of any of the six guides we had in Japan. He is clearly also a high quality person - charming, warm, and kind. The Hakone Open-Air Museum is a world-class outdoor sculpture museum that also has an entire building full of Picasso art. And the Hakone / Lake Ashi area is beautiful. We highly recommend this day trip from Tokyo with this special guide.

Spencer S.

Hi Jenifer and Spencer, thank you very much for your warm comment and high rating on the tour. It's a great horor and encouragement to me. I was so happy to share a pleasant time with you. Unfortunately, we couldn't take a cruise on Lake Ashi due to strong winds, but we were lucky to be able to see Red Fuji colored by the setting sun. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in the season of cherry blossoms in Japan in the near future.

Hakone is one of the best sightseeing spots with beautiful sceneries and 20 kinds of hot springs. Take a Shinkansen (a bullet train) from Tokyo. After that, a mountain train that runs through valleys, a ropeway that allows you to view beautiful Mr. Fuji on a sunny day and cruising at Lake Ashi. Owakudani is the place where you can see the real volcanic activity. My favorite part of this tour is Lake Ashi where You can have the most beautiful view of Mt. Fuji with the lake.
