So I'm most likely going to be getting a Hakone Pass card for the 2 days (though probably will only use it for one day, but possibly could go back).
I will be staying in Shinjuku so do I buy the pass at the station at the automated kiosks or is there somewhere else I need to purchase it at?
Now what would be the most direct and easiest way to get to Owakudani? From my research it seems there is a lot of changes and such.
Shinjuku --> Hakone-Yuoto via the Romancercar
Hakone-Yumoto --> Gora via the Hakone Tozan Train
Gora --> Sounzan via Hakone Cable Car
Sounzan --> Owakudani via the Hakone Ropeway
How long would it take then to get to Owakudani one way?
Also this trip will be solely dependent on the weather as well and I know you need to reserve the Romancercar it seems in advance (how does one do this when getting the Hakone Free Pass card?), can I do it the day before or would I need to do it several days in advance?
Just trying to simplify this trip and get the most out of a full day trip here...
