The interiors, modern, the Train is modern it's quiet smooth. Comfortable. Like. That you can buy food and drinks on the train. Toilet, facilities, are clean. I love, running other trains, especially. Coming, out from the city and into, the countryside because. You can see how it starts to change it's. All concrete jungle. Slowly. Rice, fields, and then all of a sudden as you, near, and as. You get closer to the Hakone it, becomes, more and more of nature. Either forest, green. Well, it's winter time right now so it's not that green but it's, still very beautiful. Here. I'm, so happy so. Happy. We. Arrived we, arrived with a hot corner you wanna. I, gotta. Say the air is so much cleaner. Today. Is a very nice River yeah I think we're gonna walk around and, we're gonna get something to eat man, just.
Cougar Just I have a really, good time here it's, Sunday many. People, coming to this, spa. Area, hakuna. Make, this blue blue blue sky. So. Right now we're walking along. The. Streets of Hakone yumoto this is like the main street. Of hakuna, probably, the most busiest, where all the shops and restaurants are, and it's. Really really fun if. You guys come here we do recommend you come early, because the shops do close early, here it, is not tokyo most, of the shops are closed by 5 p.m. we're, coming here are the own same lungi you definitely have to get that one all the Japanese people get. That it's, um it's, delicious, and I. Also, recommend getting, some cumin because all that water is famous, for their women which are quicker clumps, another, thing I love about this, street is all the shops have samples, like, this one wasabi, snack. Let's. Try. Most. Hobby snack 540. In for a whole bag oh. Oh. Why. Do I, really, feel like having, an insane Manju, and something else but we're. Actually gonna go eat lunch right now so I don't want to fill up with snacks and this is what Hakone is famous for this is one of their their. Handmade. Items and you're famous for this is all made of wood, isn't. It beautiful, so we're gonna go to this place called keinosuke, they're, finished they are famous for grilled, fish I feel like eating something simple. And although a lot of famous for their fish so, yeah, let's. Try this place out this is one of the signature, dishes this is the keynotes, k-th. Oh cool we have two pieces of Hachi and we have a Saba, and we can start lemon here with some daikon radish some pickled vegetables, because mrs. sook we, got a fish cake because what, the waters famous for fish cake and we got a nice, container, of piping. Hot rice, look. At that it's so nicely grilled I like, it when the skin is crispy like this. I'm. Not really good at eating fish although I love fish I love fish cooked this way. Mmm.

Got a blow dryer and you, got soap you. Got towels you got amenities, all. In all it's a very very, nice room I love it. Good. Morning, everybody so. I had a really, good sleep despite, the bad dream I had but. I had a lovely dinner last night I had lovely. Dip, in the hot spring on set water it was so nice and I, feel so chill this morning I can't. Wait to. Go. Exploring, today. So. We're taking a cable car to, our kudani, station. Which, is where the volcano, is. Hakone, we're gonna eat those black eggs they. Say if you need one egg it extend, your life seven, years very.
Terrible. Oh. Did you back there check it out oh we're. So lucky you. Know you see all the sulfur, gases down down. Down below. A. Little. Bit scary the winds are strong and our gondola is, swaying. From. Side to side it's, so scary. But. This came out. Well. We have arrived safely, at, our kudani and, yeah. You know I can't, even remember the last time I was here but. This is a spectacular. Place, I think. They renovated. This place in very. Beautiful, vidiian yeah um and. Um. The, second floor has a restaurant right now oh well, there was a restaurant before by, thinking yeah it just looks so new at moderate right now yeah, we're gonna check out the gift shop later ready for now we got to go eat those eggs because. I have to extend my life because I'm not young anymore guys. So. Check. It out. Here's. A normal egg, it's. Actually kinda creamy, it's. Already cold. You. Know I haven't been back here for many many years and, I, remember, many, years ago you used to be able to walk around the, the, rocks you, know amongst. All the the. Sulfur, gases. But, I guess it's a little bit dangerous now, so they, are refurbishing. It they are they're putting up some safety measures. Etc. And they're improving it so they're. Supposed to reopen it up again in the near future but. Anyway it's it's still a very interesting. Place to come is very rare at least for me to be so near to mother nature, like this and of, course to extend your life by, seven, years by eating one egg I mean where, else can you do that right now, we're gonna take the rope way down to talk and die we're gonna board of college hopefully. It's. Operating. Because they just need an announcement, because of strong winds the, roadway may be suspended, I don't want to stay here by the volcano wanna go through they could I see please. Right. We. Are talking debut, restaurant. Rotten. Rice nothing, on rice isn't, it the people with, the, migra sauce and um, rice it attacking us I. Like. This I, like. This fluffy, type boom, rice maybe, it is the Japanese a unique, style. It's. So smooth. Glory. To news it's. Like a cream. Of. All this, fluffy, omelette is, good. This is the most popular dish, in this restaurant I on. The other hand did not order anything, because. Unfortunately. I'm, not hungry, yet we had a pretty big breakfast, and, we. Didn't do anything active, all morning so yeah. I just got myself a matcha latte and, that's. It I think, I'm gonna wait until we get to the other side of the lake and maybe I'll get something over there. I'm, afraid of the water for. Some reason I also get seasick, but. Suppose, she assures me that this. Boat is okay this is a lake it's not the ocean so, there's gonna be very few waves hopefully. I'm okay. Your. Idea how can you watch it all this is like. Nice. Little town with restaurants. And shops I like, this place one of my favorite places in the. Last. Ship, of today it, was yeah so we just made it in time what. Should we do here let's, walk around walk. Alone okay, now. I mentioned, that there are a lot of shopping and, restaurants here, and there, is like, for example this, building, that were entering. Right now this, is actually a new building, and, there's. A lot of these shops, here that's, selling, specialties. Of the area like, this shop right here they sell the, famous Oda wadda kamaboko, fish cakes, and here. They have a really cool restaurant, on the second floor that, sells things like much, of Pancakes, and dangal. Like. This Dongo dish it looks so good for 1,100. Yen you get like, one two, three four. Four. Sticks of dangle with. Three, different, flavorings. And, a cup, of whole GT that looks really. Good the shop here that's selling a lot about Japanese, snacks and, seasonings. And there's a little coffee shop here, as well, as a gift shop oh they. Have ice cream too and this place is located right in, front of the. The boat station, that pirate boat station, so, what we can do in Hakone, town, coney much you, can ride a boat look. That's one boat or. You can walk around and, you. Can, buy many, souvenirs, here of, course, you can eat a delicious food. And imagine. Omachi para checkpoint. Or the checkpoint, place called, the hakuna, section, and, in, front of this section, there are so many shops crafted. So, cheap there are sticky rice sticky, rice. Sticky. Rice. It's. Really, windy and cold, and well. I guess the shops are kind of closing, up so we're. Gonna start heading back into town now, we did manage to enjoy. Ourselves some, traditional, Japanese, sweets and there, really is a lot more to see and do in this area but. Maybe because of the weather and because it was a weekday and perhaps, cuz it was already 4:00 p.m. all. The shops are closing up so it was time for us to head, back into town. So. We're back at Hakone yumoto station, all we gotta do now is go back on the romance car and head back to Shinjuku thank.
