A slow interesting series of forward and backward ride among the trees, bushes and scenic views. Sit back, relax and enjoy the nature! Platform for Hakone Tozan Railway is just beside the Romancecar at Hakone-Yumoto station.

The trip up to Gora takes about 45 minutes and winds you through some magnificent scenery, which is why you go to Hakone.

Rustic and scenic railway. It does not travel fast, so check the timetable if you are catching connecting transport.

Lovely old-fashioned little train mounts slowly and confidently. Beautiful views and historic mode of transport. Not too much of excitement 😊
