ใช้ตั๋วJR reserved seat จากTokyoไปOdawaraถึงประมาณ7โมงกว่าๆ จากOdawara ซื้อHakone Free Pass นั่งTozan train ไปHakone Yumoto และนั่งTozan train ไปลงสถานึGora. ช่วงนี้รถไฟแล่นกลับไปกลับมาเพราะมีอีกขบวนสวนทางกันก็แปลกแต่สนุกดี จากนั้นนั่งcable car ไปลงสถานีSounzan จากที่นี่ควรนั่งRopewayต่อไปOwakudani แต่จนท.บอกเครื่องเสียเลยต้องไปรอรถbus นานเกินครึ่งชั่วโมง ยืนรอหนาวมากมากเมื่อยมากกว่าจะได้นั่งบัสไปถึงOwakudani ได้ถ่ายรูปกับภูเขาไฟfuji บ่อกำมะถัน กินไข่ดำบะหมี่ดำและมีหิมะบนพื้น ต้องเดินกันอย่างระวังมากจากนั้นนั่งRopeway ซึ่งซ่อมเรียบร้อยไปลงTogendai koเพื่อนั่งเรือโจรสลัดล่องทะเลสาบอาชิคนเยอะเลยถ่ายรูปไม่ได้เยอะ ขึ้นท่าที่moto hakone koนั่งบัสตั้งใจไปลงต่อรถไฟที่hakone yumoto แต่พบว่าบัสไปถึงสถานีOdawara เลยไม่ลงนั่งต่อไปลงodawara station ซึ่งพบว่าเป็นการตัดสินใจที่ผิด บัสอ้อมมมากใช้เวลานานมาก น่าจะลงที่yumoto แต่ก็เลยตามเลยถึงodawara นั่งJR reserved seat กลับtokyo ถึงโตเกียวประมาณบ่ายสองโมงครึ่ง

The trail from Owakudai to Mt.Komagatake closed since 2016. But still worth a visit, go on a clear day and take a photo with Mt. Fuji in the background. It's super windy and cold (in Feb) so wear warmer layers. Don't expect to come close...More

If you are doing the Hokone round trip, worth a stop over on the ropeway - to see the volcanoes and try the famous black eggs (bear in mind each egg is supposed to extend your life for 7 years!)
