The Hakone-Tozan railway forms part of the 6 part Hakone loop taking travelers from Hakone Yumoto to Gora. It is an old train that performs 'switchbacks' in which is travels to one station before reverting its direction and going back the way it came until it reaches a point on the track where it could've taken another course, which it ends up taking. Problem is, there is around 8 stops between hakone and yumoto including 2 switchbacks, so very few people get off and you get exposed to an overly long train ride. In addition it is always packed to the rafters meaning you have to stand as the train travels excruciatingly slow. A painful experience for all involved.
