Odawara, Hakone, Yugawara
Owakudani is a valley located in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture. It was formed by the remains of a volcanic eruption of Mount Hakone about 3000 years ago. Thanks to its rugged rocks, white steam and sulphuric smell, it used to be called "The Valley of Hell".
Hakone is a hot spring town in southwestern Kanagawa Prefecture with easy access to the city.
It is home to many ryokan (Japanese inns), and it is a popular location thanks to the wealth of sightseeing spots around as well.
I picked up some Gora Manju from souvenir shop “Nakamuraya” in front of Gora Station, so that’s what I’ll be introducing this time.
Stay a night at a ryokan (Japanese-style inn) tailored to foreign tourists, “The Ryokan Tokyo Yugawara,” in Kanagawa Prefecture’s Yugawara!
Dormitory rooms start at 2700 yen per night, possibly making this the cheapest lodging in Yugawara!
