Our scrapbook notes about Hakone

Hakone is a town in Kanagawa Prefecture, just south of Tokyo, Japan. The town has a few UNESCO sights, and offers many great views of Mount Fuji, which can be enjoyed throughout the year. The town is accessed from the centre of Tokyo, most easily from Shinjuku station. However, the town is also very accessible from Yokohama. Hakone is a popular destination for hot springs and beautiful gardens, and is seen as a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the nearby cities of Tokyo and Yokohama.
