Hakone question

Jump to last reply

We have read that due to volcanic gases, the area around owakudani cannot be accessed and the hakone rope way is not operating along its entire length. Is there still enough to do in hakone and is it worth going to as a day trip or overnight?

We had originally intended to go there from Kanazawa, however the transportation time getting to hakone will take up most of a day.

We looked into an alternative route - going from Kanazawa to nikka, but that also requires a lengthy (6 hr) train ride. The train to Tokyo is only 4 hrs. So we are now wondering if it would be best to go directly to Tokyo and do nikka as a day trip instead.
