Overnight Trip to Hakone

Hakone2013_1

I went to Hakone (a hot-spring resort, popular for generations, located in the center of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park) last week with my friend. Though I’ve been visiting the resort near the Tokyo metropolitan area, it was the first time in a very long while to go through the “typical” overnight trip using Odakyu Group (a major railway company that dominate the traffic network in Hakone).
先週友人と箱根に行って来ました。何度となく訪れている箱根ですが、久しぶりに小田急グループを利用した“典型的”な一泊旅行となりました。

Day 1 一日目

We bought two “Hakone Free Passes (covering seven types of Hakone area public transportation)” and express tickets for a limited train called "Romance Car” at Shinjuku Station.

We enjoyed the hot spring, drank, took a bath again, had dinner, took a bath again, drank….
温泉に入って、飲んで、また風呂に入り、夕食を食べて、また風呂へ…。

We got up and found Mt. Fuji peeped above the mountains.

I had been wondering what kind of hot spring spot it is. Well, the facilities were old (someone would say “run-down”), but it had quite nice own hot spring.
長いことどんな温泉なのかなぁ、と思っていたかっぱ天国。設備は古い(もう少し辛辣な言い方をする方もおられるでしょう)ですが、自家源泉は大変すばらしかったです。


14:40 a.m.
We went home by special Romance car entering Tokyo Metro.
東京メトロに乗り入れるロマンスカーで帰路に。

Actually, our route was more of the same as the one Odakyu swears by.
気がつけば、小田急推奨のルートとほぼ同じ行程となりました。
