Odawara

3.2
Flanked on two sides by the Hakone Mountains, Odawara serves as a popular base for visits to the nearby Hakone hot springs, although the city boasts its own hot spring, as well as a scenic coastal area known for its clear, unspoiled waters. Sightseeing in Odawara mostly revolves around its historic castle, the adjoining museum, and the surrounding park known for its picturesque cherry and plum trees in spring. You can easily use a trip to Odawara as a base for exploring the nearby national park; in town, sample local delicacies, such as dried fish, salted plums, and "kamaboko," a type of processed white fish. Odawara is in Kanagawa Prefecture. Put Odawara at the heart of your travel plans by using our Japan trip planner.

Where to stay in Odawara

You can find a couple of accommodation options in the city of Odawara, clustered around the train station and generally offering basic lodgings. Most visitors, however, choose to stay in nearby Hakone, where they have easy access to the numerous onsen resorts and spas, as well as the national park and its hiking trails. If you opt for lodgings in Hakone, you can choose from a wide variety of choices--and prices--ranging from traditional Japanese ryokans and dormitory-style rooms, to large resorts and modern, Western-style hotels.
