If I could skip one town from my trip so far it would be Hakone. It’s too touristy. I guess I would be more positive if Mt Fuji would have been visible today. Oh well, I took pictures of postcards instead. ;) Although the modes of transportation available with the Hakone pass are pretty cool: bus, train, rail car, gondola, and pirate ship, after a long day of travel, up from Hiroshima, the last thing I was excited about was a celebration of different modes of transportation.
It was fun to stay at another Ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, though. Dinner was included, so I tried yellowtail sashimi, and some other kind of smoked fish. After dinner we went to the onsen.
