Hakone Weekend Trip

We decided that we had to try out a roykan for this trip so we booked a weekend trip to Hakone.

It was too early to check-in so we left our luggage at the roykan and went exploring. They were many itineraries online but they were quite similar.


We started off at Gora and took the Hakone Tozan Cable Car to Sounzan. From there, we transferred to the Hankone Ropeway to Togendai. We took the Hakone Sightseeing Cruise to cruise round Lake Ashinoko and took the same route back to Gora.
