Hai Discover: Since its operation in 1919, Hakone Tozan Railway is one of the few full-scale mountain railways in Japan. A train ride from Hakone-Yumoto to Gora (stations) is exceptionally beautiful, especially from mid-June to early July, when hydrangea flowers are in full bloom and are illuminated at night. One can enjoy the beautiful sightseeing from the trains and around the stations for which the Hakone Tozan train is nicknamed as ‘Hydrangea train’.


Situated in the southwestern part of Kanagawa Prefecture and part of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park, the town of Hakone is a popular sightseeing and hot spring resort destination that is easily accessible from central Tokyo.
