As the Romance Car express train glides out of Tokyo, concrete gives way to green. An hour or so into your journey to Hakone, the train emerges from a tunnel and Mt. Fuji momentarily appears, glowing pink and golden in the afternoon light - the star attraction at Hakone National Park. As if Mt. Fuji weren't enough of an attraction in itself, Hakone has blossomed into one of the largest spa towns in Japan. Besides the hundreds of inns with their own onsen, a few hot springs are devoted to day trippers such as Tenzan - a large onsen complex complete with outdoor baths.
