Started from Yokohama , Motomachi Chukagai to Hakone Lake Ashinoko. Started at 10:00 , reached destination at 13:00. Hakone (箱根) is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, around 80 Km from Kawasaki. Famous for hot springs, natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji but unfortunately it was rainy day , so couldn't see Mt Fuji.
2 Bikes , Harley and R1 , different type but one destination. 3 Hr long drive for just 80Km , traffic jam , speed from 10 Km to 100 Km ranging from place to place , passing beach , sea , mountains , zig zag.
|A Stoppage near Sagami Bay. Watching ocean , taking rest after 1:30 hr ride in traffic jam...|
Lake Ashi is a placid lake surrounded by mountains and dense forest. The view from the lake on the Hakone Sightseeing Cruise gives a completely different perspective than from land. Walking paths along the lake, Hakone-jinja Shrine, Onshi-Hakone Park and other points of interest around the lake await visitors.
Finally in Hakone welcomed by rain though went soon ..enjoy weather , lake and ramen...
Hakone Soba is famous but didnt eat as not sure is it really that famous.
|The Hakone Sightseeing Cruise ships, large, gaudily decorated replicas of pirate ships, are a famous sight on Lake Ashi and a Hakone trademark. Though we didnt ride as my partner dont want to ride ...ooh no , missed the opportunity ..|
|Ramen , just for 650 Yen , next to lake...|
