Hakone
I would like to take a day trip from Shinjuku to Hakone to Owakudani. Please advise how to get there.

Thanks

you can go to the odakyu line ticket counter at Shinjuku railway station for the odakyu express train ticket and free-pass ticket.
You can visit anywhere in Hakone with the free-pass for 2 or 3 days.

But why limit yourself to Owakudani? If you leave early (there's an Odakyu train that leaves at 0730 - although you'd need to buy the ticket and pass the day before) you could easily go on to the Hakone Outdoor Museum - a must see in that area. You'd also have time to see other sights in the area such as the old Tokaido road. You'll still get back to Shinjuku at a respectable hour. Enjoy!!!

Hi Tay and Jason,

Thanks for the feedback but I need to know why there is a great difference between Odakyu Railways costing Yen2020 or yen1150 but with the hyperdia is cost between Yen 740 and 1750.
What is Hyperdia?

Thanks
