Looking for Mt. Fuji in Hakone

The following day, I tried to get a better view of Mt. Fuji. I decided to go to Hakone instead of the Fuji 5 Lakes area because other bloggers said that in the event of bad weather, there was more to see and do in Hakone. As I approached the transfer station of Hakone, I saw Mt. Fuji again in all its glory. I didn’t take pictures because it looked like the weather was going to be perfect in Hakone. Wrong! I never saw Mt. Fuji again. I did enjoy going around Hakone though.

Hakone Open Air Museum – Because I love walking around nature, I loved the concept of an open air museum.

There are lots of things to see and do in Hakone and one day isn’t enough. I’d like to return again and stay a night or two to enjoy the onsens and see Mt. Fuji in the background of Lake Ashi.
