Japan Trip 2011 – Day 6 (Hakone)

We took a train in the morning to Hakone, which isn’t too far away from the Tokyo area.

Hakone is known for its numerous onsen inns.

Since we had arrived early, we dropped off our luggage at the inn and decided to walk back to the train station.

The atmosphere was very calm and peaceful. I could see why it was so popular.

Once we were back at the station, we had to somehow make our way to Owakudani to try out the famous kuro tamago (black eggs).

    wow looks very nice there, and looks like more ppl and more things to see/do there than way out at Gero. the fresh country side air tucked away in a vally is really nice and relaxing. wish i could visit these kinda places more often.

    also your first pic reminds me of a bridge out in Gero, except it was for a train, tho there was a walkway, we were a little scared of a train coming while crossing it.. <_<;;

    Yeah, I wish I could go traveling more often. 🙁

    I think one reason why there’s more people is simply because it’s decently close to Tokyo. It was really nice and relaxing though with lots of things to see.

    Ah, they do look similar. These smaller rural places seem to all have a relaxing atmosphere. Haha, if there’s a walkway no worries right? 🙂
