Full description
Start from a central location in Shinjuku in Tokyo and travel to the region’s most notable fortress, Odawara Castle. This is a popular location in the plum and cherry blooming season when flowers and Japanese traditional architecture create a wonderful atmosphere. Visit the main keep, where you will have the chance to see authentic pieces of Samurai armor and weaponry before getting to the highest point of the structure, with a great view on the surrounding mountains and ocean. Next discover the Hakone area as you embark on a cruise on Lake Ashi, with views of the volcanic valley and Mount Fuji on clear days. Enjoy a traditional regional lunch with halal and vegetarian options available. Visit Japanese hot springs in a location unique to the locals. Bathe in the thermal waters, thought to have healing properties. You can also bathe in wine or coffee, for a unique experience!
