HAKONE WAS A BLAST!

Hakone is a mountainous town west of Tokyo. The town is known for its hot springs and views of Mount Fuji. Lake Ashi is also nearby, but don’t go swimming in the water. According to many of the locals, if you go swimming in Lake Ashi, you will die!

Some people went to onsen. Most people rode on a pirate ship. A few people went up in cable cars. But EVERYONE had a great time.
