This day in Tokyo was amazing.  We traveled to the Hakone Ropeway , a sky-gondola arrangement over the Owakudani volcano.

Then we arrived at Lake Ashi for a lovely lake cruise.

After the cruise, we had a delicious lunch at a local hotel restaurant, including some very tiny creme brulees.  Yum!

Then we traveled to the 5th Station of Mt. Fuji, a truly amazing site.  The air was chill and we saw many groups of hikers about to start the climb.

Traffic was incredible going back to Tokyo and we ended up taking 5 hours to get back instead of the 3 that were planned.  However, we had a delicious teppenyaki dinner when we got back to the hotel.

Hugs to you and yours,
