Hakone instead of Toyko for 1 night?

Jump to last reply

Coming off of a 5 week trip in Asia, we've got 5 nights in Kyoto and only one night to spend in either Tokyo or Hakone on way to NRT. My initial plan was one night in Tokyo at the Palace, but the thought of trying to make a little sense of Tokyo in that short of time sounds daunting. Then, I realized i could take the bullet train from Kyoto to Odawara and the Hyatt in Hakone would pick us up. I'm picturing relaxing in an onsen and beautiful mountain views as perhaps a better alternative to Tokyo and a good precedent for a long flight back to US. Yet, my cursory reading about Hakone also sounds rather complicated. Plus, the fact it's a Friday night, April 17th, smack dab in the middle of cherry blossom time, might make the region extremely crowded. What would you do?
