Hakone is a place only 1.5 hours away from Tokyo, yet it has a very different atmosphere. While Tokyo is famous for the city lights, exciting shopping districts and night life Hakone is a place that people go to to escape the city life. It's a popular destination for both Japanese and international tourists who want to experience the nature and the famous onsen or Japanese hot springs! Most of these hot springs are traditional Japanese bath places but the Yunnesun spa resort is something completely different! So hop on the Pokemon train and visit Hakone if you have a chance!
