don't forget to enjoy the artistry and authenticity as a pirate ship.



Torii of Kuzuryujinja Shrine

Its origin is Hakone Shrine. 
On the 13th of each month, 
many ladies will go to worship and pray for their love and marriage in the future.



Antique architectural design  
Prince Palace Hotel 




Wow!! Awesome! 
Are we in the paradise? 






About 30 minutes, 
finally arrived Moto-hakone. 



Oh!!! we have seen this torii from the cruise.




Our inner clocks have alerted us it is time for lunch! 
We can't help ourselves of not walking towards to restaurant. lol

After getting off the cruise,  
we decided to have lunch at a restaurant called Odakyu Ashinoko Restaurant.

  



Bowl of rice topped with HAKONE soy milk skins  \1300

Specialty of Hakone ~ Yuba
It is also called Tofu skin, and bean curd skin. 
It is a food product made from soybeans. 
If you wanna have something other than noodles, 
this bowl rice is a good try!




1F of restaurant. 
It is a shop for Japanese souvenir. 
Of course, you may also find local sake of Hakone.  



Talk a walk along the shade trees road


Hakone Shrine

Built in Year 757, the oldest shrine in Hakone.
Let us feel another different landscape of Hakone. 
A highly recommended spot for the ones who have never been to here!



History of several hundreds year

It is said that it was General Tokugawa Ieyasu's idea to plant trees here and build this 
Parthenon Main Street   
Giving us the sense of tranquility and peace, 



Those who wear yellow caps are elementary school students having field trip.




Feel a little bit hungry ......
Oh! It is tea time. 
What a nice harmony of bitter green tea and sweet red bean soup with dumpling!
A perfect match!




A peaceful afternoon.



Unfortunately, the weather is not good enough to allow us to be able to see the Mount Fuji.
Wish you could see it when you have chance visiting.


Why heading to Hakone right after arriving Japan?

No need to get on train when you arrive Tokyo. 
Directly taking the Evangelion bus from Haneda Airport. 

Different from Tokyo, 
it is a place with mountains and water, 
a land of mother nature 
"Hakone"



Hakone give you freshness every time.
Try to plan your Tokyo Trip 
with one-day of Hakone Travel in the middle or 
you might just wanna directly go from Haneda Airport.
