I arrived at my accommodation in Odawara the previous night and was excited to visit Hakone the next morning. After hearing about the views of Mt Fuji and seeing beautiful pictures of Lake Ashi and the shrine emerging from the water, I could hardly wait.
What started out as dismal weather, by the afternoon I was able to gaze at Mt Fuji in all its majesty. Hakone is truly a place of many beauties, and its nature can be enjoyed in all kinds of weather. Have you ever had a day turn out to be more rewarding than first thought?
