This post is continued from the previous post, Trip to Aizu, Nikko and Hakone in 2014 winter – Part 12, Takasaki to Hakone via Odawara.
I had to go back to Tokyo by noon. I did not have enough time to visit all places in Hakone. I supposed to go to Sounzan from Hakone-Yumoto by Hakone Tozan Railway and Hakone Tozan Cablecar.
But there were lots of snow. Cablecar was closed due to heavy snow. I asked station staff and he said even Hakone Tozan Railway was opened one day before.
Anyway I took the train and I went to Gora that is the end of Hakone Tozan Railway.
It was around 8:00 am and very quietly around the station. Of course Cable car stayed the station very quietly.
At Gora station, both train station and cablecar station are connected. You can transfer directly through the transfer gate.
I walked around the station but I could not find anything to do because of snow and early morning. So I went back to Hakone-Yumoto.
I took newer fleet on the way back.
From Hakone-Yumoto, I took Odakyu Romancecar to Shinjuku.
There are several kinds of fleets for Odakyu Romancecar train. I took EXE series. That is most common series. It was not bad but not super good. Odakyu has more attractive fleets that has panoramic window at both end. But I had no choice because I had an appointment in Tokyo around noon.
I had medium size suitcase. I could store my suitcase at upper luggage space.
And I arrived at Shinjuku. I completed my trip there.
It was very short trip. But my trip is always like this and I saw many places and took many kinds of trains. I really enjoyed this trip.
However I could not take my original flights because of overbook. 🙁
Narita airport was closed a few days ago due to heavy snow. I stayed in Shinagawa one more night and went back to my place, Canada. 🙂
