Hakone – Tokyo

Had to leave the lovely Hakone area today but not before another pirate ship cruise on Lake Ashi and a walk around Togendai where we found our first Japanese postcard, an interesting ad for 30 kinds of icecream – would love to have tried the one called ‘Tiny rice crackers and peanuts’ but time didn’t permit – and the Koijri Watergate which allows water from the lake to irrigate the plains below.

Things we find a bit different

Warm toilet seats with the sound of running water playing while you pee.
