Hakone Free Pass - Odakyu Train (part 1 of 7)

The first step to visit Hakone is to purchase the Hakone free pass which is described in my previous post. From any area in Tokyo, you should take Metro to Shinjuku station to board Odakyu train which goes direct to Odawara. For those who don't familiar with the train system in Tokyo, its quite confusing to take this train. They offers many kinds of train from express to limited express which has more stops. For express, it will pass by some of the non-popular stations without stop. But just make sure that you taking the right train to Odawara. The journey from Shinjuku station to Odawara took me almost 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Tip: If you plan to take train earlier than 8.30am to Hakone, do make sure to purchase the ticket from Odakyu ticketing office in Shinjuku station a day before as their office only opens from 8.30am to 6.00pm.

Arrived Odawara station.

The station seems modern enough.

From here, we will go direct to Gora.
