An onsen hot spring resort with superb views of Mt. Fuji

Hakone developed as a large-scale resort easily accessible from Tokyo, set in a crater with magnificent volcanic landscapes. Its trademark is the stunning view of Mt. Fuji reflected in Lake Ashinoko, the large crater lake. Transportation options include mountain railways, cable cars, aerial lifts and lake cruise boats. Some of the major tourist spots are the volcanic scenery of Owakudani Valley with its continuously surging steam, the wetland plants of Sengokuhara, and the historical Hakone Sekisho check point. The town also has many types of lodgings, most with onsen hot springs. With a long history of hosting foreign travelers, Hakone has an international flavor, as shown by the multilingual signs throughout the town and the old Fujiya Hotel, which once hosted John Lennon and Ono Yoko.
