Day 8 - Lake Aishi, Hakone, Ropeway and Gotemba Premium Shopping Outlet

For a change, we are joining a local day tour group to the region of Hakone which is near Mount Fuji.
The meeting point was at a hotel in Shinjuku at 9.00 am. Therefore we had to leave very early from Yokohama so as to be on time at the meeting point.
Shinjuku early in the morning
Then it was on the bus for a hour and half journey to Hakone.

Then its onto the cable car up the mountain

The ropeway at the time of this blog is closed due to volcanic activities!

Here everybody gotta eat the black hardboiled eggs.

After a late buffet lunch, the last stop of the day before heading back to Tokyo was Gotemba Premium Outlets. Perhaps the highlight of the day's actvities for the girls!

Just under two hours of shopping and they managed to return to the bus with big shopping bags.
