We wanted to get out of the city and chose to make a day trip to Hakone. Hakone is a popular getaway for tourists who want some fresh air and great mountain views. On clear days you can see Mt. Fuji from here.

The train ride took a little over 2 hours. We were supposed to ride the comfortable "Romancecar" train, but there was something wrong with it so we ended up standing for over an hour on a subway. We took a round-trip as recommended with a zik-zak train up the hills. The trip continued by cable car and then the roapway up and over the hills and volcanic gas field ending up by Ashi lake. We had great views of the mountains around us and fall foliage. The sun was just setting and we caught the last boat to other side of the lake. After a short bus ride we took the train back to Tokyo.
