    Visited with a friend. Wonderful quiet time surrounded by art. Had a nice outdoor path with large artwork against the backdrop of trees. Parking fee for each entrance, next t it's entrance.

    A nice restaurant within its ground an accessible without museum ticket too. There is a separate cafe in the lounge area as well.

    We took a lake tour boat trip which had a good view of Mt. Fuji at the beginning of the journey. The whole journey was peaceful and quiet, nice way to relax and savour the scenery.

    The museum gave me a deeper knowledge about the life of the author of The Little Prince. It also tackled loads of historical connection to the book. I just wish the movie about little prince and Saint-Exupery has some English subtitle for international guests to appreciate it too.

    A gentle stroll up the hill on a gravel path through the pampas grass with good views of the surrounding area .
    There’s parking nearby and a Lawson convenience store .
    Worth a quick visit .

    At the entrance you can buy your black eggs! Each one eaten gives you 7 more years to your life. We bought 5 together in a package. Inside you can peel and eat your eggs. They are selling tons of souvenirs. Towards the back there is some intricate wood working items. Very beautiful.

    My experience climbing Mt. Kintoki may not qualify for a review as it happened in 1964. I was stationed at Camp Fuji with the Marines at the time and was invited to the climb with three members of the Japanese Self Defense Forces. The climb was a good workout. The trail was not crowded, a few other Japanese climbers. Upon reaching the top, we gathered at a small house where a woman lived with her young daughter. There we sang songs in our native tongues. It was a great experience which I will never forget.

    we almost literally stumbled into gora park on our way from our ryokan to gora station, and i'm so glad we did! this lovely little place has a variety of formal garden landscapes to explore, all tucked neatly on the hillside above town. there's a wonderful little cafe which looked enticing, though we wandered through at the wrong time (it wasn't yet lunch), and even a beautiful orchid and greenhouse. definitely worth some time if you're exploring gora - it's about a five minute walk from the station.

    If you want to combine a visit to Lake Ashi with a little, easy hike on the lakeside then Onshi Hakone Park is your place to be. It is a serene and not to strenuous hike, maybe even walk, that I can also recommend to elderly visitors of the city. If the weather is fortitudinous you might even catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji and even if not the remains of traditional fishing villages and the calm nature will have been worth your time anyways.

    You need to be fairly fit for this. We did the 30 minutes from Motohakone to the tea house. In June it was pretty slippery so wear good shoes. A bit muddy in places as well but well worth the effort. The start is 400m up the side road from the Motohakone bus stop. Lonely Planet - that would have been a bit more helpful info 😀. The tea house is lovely and staff speak good English. The bus stops right outside so if you don’t want to walk back, it’s an easy return.

    A short hike to a beautiful setting. The falls aren’t huge but they’re worth the trip! Get off the tour bus route and venture here for some relaxation.

    There were a lot of animals and fish to view so it does feel good value for money, however, some of the enclosures could have been bigger. Our favourite but was the penguins and the seals. I would recommend it to family and couples.

    Stayed at the hotel and this is effectively the rear garden area. Nice outlook and great to go to sleep at night to the sound of the waterfalls

    We did this pretty short hike in the south-east direction, from the bus stop just north of Ashinoyu to a bus stop just south of Hatajuku.

    In that direction, you’ll be descending pretty much 99% of the time. The trail is relatively steep at time. The waterfalls are after 0.9km. They are not spectacular, but they are a nice thing to do it you’re just looking to stretch the legs.

    Everything is well indicated and the trails are very well maintained.

    The total hike took a bit less than 1 hour.

    I used the free maps.me app, which will allow you to download the local trails for off-line use.

    Started from Sengokuhara, where the bus dropped us off. A clearly marked route - look for brown signs. We found the timings were pretty accurate although we came down a bit quicker. We saw great views of mt. Fuji from the summit and along the ridge. Would recommend boots or good shoes since some parts of rocky uneven surfaces. We returned down to Miyagino. Whole trip was 11 km in about 5 hours including stops for photos and lunch.

    You can see what it’s going to be like as you enter. This building was not meant to host animals and it shows. It’s a circular room with windows all around and the ticket counter is just a table at the door.

    Hard floor, exposed, all the animals are in there kept as objects with no right to privacy. There was a little monkey who looked completely panicked in a glass box - with no place to hide.

    A lama stepped back as I got close and he was simply bot happy to be there. Same goes with the rabbits, sheep, etc.

    Please see the photographs to get a sense of the place - it speaks volume.

    I have not seen petting zoos anywhere else but it here at the expense of the wellbeing of the animals. Animals are not toys that can be manipulated at will. A truly awful experience.
