I will travel by train from Tokyo to Hakone. After visiting I like to travel to Kyoto by train. Is it better to return to Tokyo and continue from there to Kyoto or is it better to go by train directly from Hakone to Kyoto. If this is the better option, which train should I take?
Thanks Gerhard


  • Dear Gerhard

    The best thing would be to travel to Kyoto from Hakone, otherwise you would be going back on yourself. The nearest shinkansen train station is Odawara. From Odawara station you can take the train to Kyoto.

    Hope that helps.

    Best regards
