We are planning on a 3 days 2 nights trip from Tokyo to Fuji-Hakone – Izu area. The trip idea came from the model plan on JNTO website. Here is the link – jnto. The plan does not give a transportation detail. After reading some posts here and there and looked into the Okakyo railway website, I think I can use a 3 days Fuji-Hakone Free Pass to cover most of transportation in Fuji lake area and Hakon including train ride between Tokyo and Odawara.
The part that goes from Gotemba to Mishima then to Shugenji and Shimoda and return back to Odawara will probably need additional purchase. Can anyone who has done this route before give me some suggestion on transportation and accommodation? Our budget for accommodation is 25, yen per person. We will like a comfortable room that are not too old and tired looking with good bath.
If we travel as the travel plan suggested on the JNTO website, can it be done in 3 days without too rush? Where do you spend your nights? In Hakone and Shuzenji? Have you checked the route and time through Shuzenji, Shimoda, Atami to Tokyo?
Sorry to have confused you. My route is as suggested in the Japan national Tourist Organisation. Here is the 3-day model trip plan to Fuji, Hakone and Izu. Togendai kojini – sightseeing around the Lake Ashinoko – Mishima – Shuzenji. The detail is on the jnto. Accommodation – are Gogendai and Shuzenji a good place to spend a night?
Or I can stay in nearby town.
Any good rykon recommendation? How do we handle our luggage when we sightseeing? Is there locker in bus or train station? After we check out inn, we are not likely to go back. So can’t really store luggage in the inn we stay.

How about the route to Shimoda? We are returning back to San Francisco on 5: We will need to be in Narita Airport by 3: That means, we will probably need to get back to Tokyo station no later than 2: That does not leave us much time on June 4th for Day 3 Shuzenji – Shimoda. Shall I just forget Izu and just stay around Fuji Lake area? Arrive Narita – Ginza. I’ve reviewed the model plan on JNTO site.
Please take a look at the Izu map at. Day 1 May Arrive Narita — Ginza. Day 2 May Day 4 May Day 8 June 2: Fuji, stay in Hakone. May I ask why? Have you been to Kyoto before? If you don’t visit Kyoto, would you be interested in taking a day trip to Kamakurajust an hour away from Tokyo?

Thank you so much for the suggestion. We’ve been to Kyoto twice and absolutely loved the city. Food, culture, art, garden, people.
We had wonderful time there. Our Japan trip this time is to further explore Tokyo’s different neighborhoods as well as to see the nature.
Hence, we plan to stay and use Tokyo as hakkne and take side trips to Nikko hakkne Hakone. We will be staying in Park Hotel in Ginzawhich looks to be easy for accessing subway to everywhere in Tokyo. The hotel website does not have an English page for booking. The website only have resevervation in Japanese. I emailed them but haven’t gotten any response. Any suggestion as to how to book this hotel?
Can you comment, please? Do you think we need to book place to stay for Nikko and Hakone trips before we arrive Japan? Or can we book them after we get there. Oh, Hakone Ginyu is a great ryokan, and therefore is very popular among Japanese tourists! It is hard to book a room at Hakone Ginyu. Then, your itinerary would be as follows:. There is a bus route from Shuzenji to Kawazu an Izukyu station near Shimoda.
Shuzenji is a nice spot where author Natsume Soseki spent some time. Two years ago I drove through Shuzenji to Izu -Kogen. There are some scenic view drive route. Thanks, Edokko and Nomonomo. They have an office in Seattle, so the communication and booking is much easier.
They recommanded Kinnotake Ryokan, which is a new member ryokan to their collection and not far from Gora Kadan or Hakone-Ginyu. I have changed my trip plan and swapped the Nikko and Fuji-Hakone side trips becuase of the ryokan availability.
As for the Nikko side trip, hotel-shikisai also emailed me back about their rate and availability. Returning back to Tokyo for the last night of trip will leave us more time next day. We can go easy on the last day in Japan without rushing. Quick question – did you stay at Kinnotake? If so did you like it? I’ve stayed at Gora Kadan and was wondering whether to take a friend there or to try Kinnotake?
