Odawara

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kanto  /  Kanagawa Prefecture  /  Odawara
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. With the Inspirock custom trip planner, Odawara and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

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.
