One day trip to Hakone from Tokyo
I went on a day trip to Hakone with an invite of my friends from the US. I really enjoyed Onsen bathing and gorgeous food.
I headed to Hakone-Yumoto by Odakyu Romance Car, while they went there by JR. The image above is the interior of the Romance Car.

After leaving their luggage, we headed for Lake Ashi to do the Hakone Loop.
This photo was taken on another occasion. Mt Fuji couldn't be seen on the day.

As soon as we returned to the hotel, we took a bath. There were inner and outer bath tubs. It was a fabulous moment.
Then dinner time came. This is an appetizer. It was not only visually beautiful but tasty.
Sashimi of sliced bonito and bean curd skins
Fried eggplant etc in soy sauce
Soup; I liked this the best of all the dishes.
Main dish, chicken with vegetables, steamed rice and miso soup
Overall the food was sensational to me.
