It’s no secret that Hakone is one of the most popular and accessible day trip destinations from Tokyo. What keeps people coming back is its famous hot springs and vastly untouched nature. Not to mention, on a lucky day, visitors can get a perfect glimpse of Mount Fuji from afar. Perhaps most strikingly, Hakone is heaps quieter, which is why even locals come here for a respite from the busy city on weekends.
As this is a private tour, itinerary can be tailored according to your interests.
Hassle free and comfortable way of visiting Fuji and Hokone.
P.S All the location’s mentioned in the itinerary can’t be cover in one day, you can make own personalized itinerary with the help of driver on the tour day.

If you take a glance over the vast, dreary piece of land, you’ll notice a white pillar of smoke rising from the bare surface of the mountain… Owakudani is one of most famous viewpoints in Hakone, where you can observe the intense volcanic activity from up close. It is said that this place came to be thanks to a phreatic eruption and pyroclastic flow that occurred almost 3000 years ago. The peculiar sulfur smell that spreads throughout the area was the reason behind its second name from the past, Jigokudani (Hell Valley). One of the local specialties is the “black eggs”, whose main trait is in the shells that turn black due to a chemical reaction with geothermal energy and volcanic gas. Head to this unique site using the ropeway, and enjoy a nice view of Hakone and Mt. Fuji along the way.

Aamer is very kind and helpful and his car is awesome. We enjoyed the various viewing points of the famous Mt Fuji and also enjoyed a traditional lunch and visit to historic Oshino Hakkai with beautiful thatched roofs, watermills and amazing ponds and scenery.
Fantastic Day!

Unforgettable Hakone & Mt. Fuji trip

Our driver Aamer is the most wonderful driver/guide in world! Although he is a student and young, he has a good sense of humour, is mature, friendly, polite and knowledgeable. He was not only a driver/guide, he treated us like family and he stood with us in a lineup on a windy and cold day just to take a picture of us in front of Hakone Shrine. He also gave us an options to choose from and helped us to make the best of the day. Aamer also recommended delicious, local food specialties for us to try. On our trip to Mt. Fuji, he kelp checking the weather conditions and drove really carefully because there was snow and ice. We truly enjoyed his company and highly recommended his services. Thanks again, Aamer!
