Hakone (Mt Fuji)

Visit Hakone (Mt Fuji)

Introduction

Hakone is well loved for two attractions in particular - the iconic view of sacred, symmetrical Mount Fuji seen across Lake Ashi, and its high concentration of bubbling onsen (hot springs).

Onsen bathing is integral to Japanese society and a trip to one of the 3,000 or so baths across the country is almost akin to a religious act. Onsen also provide soothing relief after walks through the park's many peaks and valleys, or for those who choose to undertake the ultimate climb in Japan and trek to the top of Fuji-san.
