9:40 AM – Hakone Checkpoint – Take the Hakone Tozan Bus from Hakone-Yumoto Station
Today we’ll be introducing a sightseeing course that allows you to take advantage of the Hakone Freepass. By using this pass, you can travel within the Hakone area economically, and also receive discounts at certain attractions (some places are excluded).
As long as you have the pass, you can utilize it for transportation free of charge (unless otherwise mentioned).
Let’s begin our Hakone excursion by boarding a bus and enjoying our trip the smart way!
The Hakone Tozan Bus is convenient for sightseeing because you don’t have to worry about getting lost or looking for a parking space.
Also, buses come often at regular intervals. For example, buses going to Lake Ashi’s Motohakone and Togendai areas, run four to seven times per hour during the daytime.
First, let’s get on a Hakone Tozan Bus (H or R Route) at Hakone-Yumoto, and get off at Hakone Checkpoint (Hakone Sekisho)(154), one of the stops at Lake Ashi.
