    Hakone 1

    April 9, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Der heutige Tag war ziemlich anstrengend und dass obwohl ich mich kaum bewegt habe. Ich habe noch nie so viele verschiedene öffentliche Verkehrsmittel an einem Tag benutzt wie heute.
    Nachdem ich mit dem Nachtbus kurz vor um 8 Uhr in Shinjuku angekommen bin (Vorort von Tokyo), habe ich mir einen Zug gesucht, mit dem ich zu meinem eigentlichen Ziel, dem Ort Odawara/ Hakone gefahren bin.
    In Odawara bin ich dann kurz nach 10 Uhr angekommen, habe schnell den Rucksack ins Hostel gebracht und dann ging es weiter. Da der Wetterbericht für die nächsten Tage schlechtes Wetter ansagt, wollte ich unbedingt heute versuchen den Mt. Fuji zu sehen.
    Also habe ich mich in den Bus gesetzt und bin zum Ashi-See gefahren. Dort kann man mit einem "Piratenschiff" über den See fahren und genießt einen wunderbaren Blick auf die umliegenden Berge und den Hakone Vulkan. Auch einen Teil des Mt. Fuji konnte ich da schon sehen.
    Auf der anderen Seite des Sees angekommen, bin ich in die Seilbahn bestiegen und auf den Hakone Vulkan gefahren. Von der Mittelstation aus hatte ich dann einen schönen Blick auf den schneebedeckten Mt. Fuji. Nur eine Wolke hat sich hartnäckig am Gipfel des Fuji festgehalten.
    An der Mittelstation der Seilbahn befindet sich "Owakudani", ein vulkanisches Tal. Hier kann man den schwefelhaltigen Dampf der heißen Quellen aufsteigen sehen und es riecht auch ziemlich streng. 😉
    Anschließend bin ich zur Endstation der Seilbahn gefahren und mit der Straßenbahn und zwei Zügen ging es dann zurück nach Odawara.
    Mit all den Verkehrsmitteln habe ich heute eine tolle Tour durch die Hakone-Region gemacht, die landschaftlich wirklich klasse ist.

    First stop Hakone

    January 11, 2020 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    First stop on my trip is Hakone and Lake Ashi! Couldn’t believe that I’m lucky to actually see Mt Fuji, often covered in clouds and fog there is a high chance that you travel this far and don’t actually see it. So this really is a fantastic start to my trip.Read more

    Hakone shrine

    March 11, 2020 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    The Hakone-jinja shrine dates back to the year 757 and was a place where military commanders prayed, which is how it became known in Japan. Today, a lot of travelers go and visit it and I was one of them.
    A Hakone-jinja szentély a 757es évtől létezik és a katonai parancsnokok imádkozó helye volt, így lett ismert Japánban. Manapság, számos utazó látogatja meg és ma én egyikük voltam.

    Hakone Moto: Extreme Hill climbing

    September 15, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    #Abunai = dangerous

    The night in the camp was quite rough, i could hardly sleep. Early in the morning we packed our stuffs and then i started to realise something is terribly wrong with my rear wheel. It wobbles like crazy and its not possible to continue cycling that way...we decided to look for a repair shop, after asking around and trying to decypher what the locals tried to tell us, we manage to find a good one. The owner of the bike shop was very friendly and talkative, he even showed us pictures of his last bicycle tours. Bad news..the wheel was so bended, its not possible to true it back. There was even a big crack on the wheel. The wheel must go! I had to buy a new wheel and within an hour or so the bike is ready! The owner even changed my bike's brake after hearing that we are heading to Hakone.. "Abunai!" he said, since the road to Hakone is quite steep. The bike felt like new, we cycled further to Hakone. The first 40 km was all well but then comes the anticipated hill-climbing session: around 15 km long and 850 m high! The road was rough and after 6:00 it got pitch-black and theres no street lamp! After the climbing horror we managed to find ourself a nice japanese motel on the hillRead more

    Day Trip to Hakone

    October 24, 2015 in Japan ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    With many options of day trips to choose from from Tokyo, we decide to go to Hakone as its one of the closer destinations and we had to visit an Onsen while we're in Japan!

    Transport options were not as straightforward as we had expected and we discover all the attractions are quite spaced out. Fortunately the friendly Japanese help us out and we end up buying a day ticket that covers half of the area.

    Unfortunately we underestimate the time it takes to travel between locations and end up taking an extremely long winded route to the main harbour where you are meant to see great views of mount Fuji... On a nice day. Unfortunately for us it starts raining as soon as we get there so our 4 hour slow train and bus ride up and down the mountain was somewhat fruitless.. at least the train ride was quite nice!

    Next stop we head to the Onsen.. which fortunately is lovely! Its a traditional Onsen where the men and women are separated and everyone goes in the nude... We spend 2 hours there relaxing in the baths and enjoying the scenery. Suki even manages to get a bit of meditation in!

    January 12, 2020 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Short walk from Motohakone is the Hakone Shrine, a beautiful lake front Shrine nestled into the side of a mountain... got here bright and early to beat the crowds and it paid off!
