Located less than one hour from Tokyo by train, Hakone is part of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Hakone is a beautiful part of Japan, and it offers everything a vacationer could hope for in their journey around the country such as mountains, lakes, hot springs, museums and interesting historical sites. Hakone is a must-see destination for any traveler to Japan.

Traveling from Narita Airport to Hakone will take some time. If your plane lands in the early morning at Narita International Airport, you can make it to a Hakone ryokan in time for dinner. However, if your plane arrives after 10:00am you will not be able to make it in time for dinner. You should stay at least 1 night in Tokyo and then go to Hakone the next day.
