Gateway to the Hakone district is Odawara, about 30 minutes from Tokyo on the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train.
A further 30 minutes by road brings you to Lake Ashi, set amid the wild expanses of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. The lake forms a scenic beauty spot with classic views of Mount Fuji, now a World Heritage site. This district is also one of Japan's leading areas for hot spring resorts thanks to the abundant flow and varied composition of the natural waters. A further attraction lies in the numerous art galleries dotted among the sweeping landscapes.
