Art Museums · Bodies of Water · Lookouts
Sitting at the foot of Mount Fuji, Hakone-machi has become a popular retreat from Tokyo for locals and tourists alike. The mountain town developed around hot springs, with a trip to the local "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) a key feature of holidays in Hakone-machi. The iconic volcano sets the tone for the dramatic scenery and spiritualism that run through Hakone-machi, with a number of lakes, hills, and forests to explore, seemingly all marked by a hidden shrine or important temple.
