Lake Kawaguchiko & hakone in 2 days 2007/10/22 00:26
We are plannig 2 days near Mt Fuji area. Has anyone visited lake Kawaguchiko? Is it worth the trip? I thought it was close to Hakone and booked a one night treat at a beautiful traditional ryokan there. I thought to travel from shinjuku/Tokyo to kawaguchiko and on the second day visit the sights in hakone. Only now i realise that if i want to visit hakone, take the boat on lake ashi, ride the cablecar, it is approx a 3-4 hr bus ride from Kawaguchiko. Is it worth the trip or should i cancel my accomodation in Kawaguchiko and do the highly popular Tokyo-hakone return trip and find accommodation near hakone yumoto? I'm leaving in 5 days to Japan...Pls Help me..!!! thanks.

Hi, I've been to Hakone and it will take up the whole day. Travelling between the attractions within Hakone is relatively time consuming, but the sights are definitely worth it.
