Last (belated) autumn post before moving on to winter. Just 50 minutes and USD3.50 from Central Tokyo by train, hiking Mount Takao is a perfect way to work off all those holiday calories and get in touch with nature.
Since it’s Mothers’ Day here is the long delayed trip report of my visit to Hakone with Mummy dearest back in 2015. As you know I dislike this sort of typical tourist itinerary, but it is a good place to bring the old folks and first-timers to Japan.
For the jaded tourist- A good mix of culture and cafe-hopping in an uncrowded area of Tokyo.
Trip reports and budgeting for a 3-night stay in Tokyo with a 1 night side trip to a hot springs area.
Girlie trip with mummy dearest!
