The hydrangea start to bloom in mid-June. The Hakone Tozan Train, which climbs slowly up the Hakone mountains, is known as the Hydrangea Train during this season. The flowers along the tracks between Hakone-Yumoto and Gora Station bloom at a different times depending on the altitude. Passengers can enjoy the colorful view from the middle of June to late July. There is also a special night train during this period, which offers a fantastic view of the illuminated flowers.
