How Many Hours to do the Hakone "Circuit"?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will arrive at Narita Airport from Singapore at 6:30 in the morning, and need to be back the next day about 1:00 pm for a 4 pm flight

We are still debating whether to:

1) Stay around Tokyo

2) Head immediately to Hakone, spend the day, then come back to Tokyo or Narita for the night, or

3) Do the circuit in Hakone, and spend the night in Hakone Yumoto or Oodawara, leaving about 9:30 am on friday to get to Narita by 1:00 PM

We are very familiar with travel in Japan, and would book return tickets to be sure we could get back to Narita on time.

The problem is that I know there are lots of places to get off and wander, but I cannot seem to figure out how many hours are needed for the basic - train/cablecar/ropeway/pirate ship/ bus to Odawara - circuit.

Say we arrive in Hakone at 11:30 am. Will we have enough time to do the circuit and have dinner? (To us, eating is always the draw at inns or ryokan.)

Of course, this all assumes we can even get a room in Hakone at this late date, but I need to decide if we want to do this before I start emailing hotels!
