We woke up very early that day because we will be going to Hakone and yes will ride the famous Shinkanzen!!  We took the train to Shinagawa Station, purchased the Shinkanzen ticket and off to the beautiful scenic Hakone to view Mount Fuji.  Hakone is less than 100 km from Tokyo and take around 70-90 minutes by local or rapid train to get there but only 30 mins by shinkanzen.  

Few minutes walk from our apartment to Roppongi Station
Roppongi Midtown

We were at Shinagawa Station

The excited me with Kodama Shinkanzen.  I wish there is Nozomi Shinkanzen to Hakone  

30 minutes later, here we were at Odawara Station

We bought light breakfast at the nearest convenient store before we took a bus ride to Lake Ashi and Owakudani.  I'll do a separate entry on both place.  This post will be about Hakone town

Beautiful Hakone town. Very different from Tokyo

Sorry I got to end my short and uninformative post here.  I am feeling unwell tonight and really need to have an early night. I will try to continue to write about my journey tomorrow
