We decided that we had to try out a roykan for this trip so we booked a weekend trip to Hakone.
On the early Romancecar to Hakone. The train ride took around 90 mins.
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.

We reached Sounzan. Taking the transfer for the Hakone Ropeway.
The weather was quite bad. We felt like we were travelling in the clouds most of the time.

Sulfuric fumes from the volcanic activities
The famous black egg: shells are blackened by the sulfur and are said to prolong one’s life by seven years. I didn’t try it though.

Our room at the ryokan
Took a dip at the hot spring, changed into traditional yukata and it’s time for dinner.
The room was laid while we were having dinner.
Went Gotemba for a short shopping trip after breakfast.
Psst! Remember to get the Hakone Freepass. All my transportation was covered for my 2 days 1 night trip.
