Hakone Tozan Railway
A ride on the Hakone Tozan Railway is a treat not only for railway fans: The small train winds itself through a narrow, densely wooded valley over many bridges and trough numerous tunnels, stopping at small stations along the way and changing directions at three switchbacks. The Hakone Tozan Line consists of two sections, a less spectacular section from Odawara to Hakone-Yumoto which is also used by Odakyu trains from central Tokyo, and the spectacular section from Hakone-Yumoto to Gora, where many travelers transfer to the cablecar towards Lake Ashi. The 35 minute train ride from Hakone-Yumoto to Gora is especially spectacular in June and July when thousands of ajisai (hydrangea) are in bloom along the tracks and are illuminated in the evenings.
