Maihama (Disney) To Hakone. Drive? Train?

We are thinking of heading to Hakone from Disney direct, via train. What is the easiest journey? We have a 4 years old with us. We are also exploring driving. Which one would you recommend? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Consider Disney to Tokyo via JR Keiyo train in abt 15min, then chg to Kodama Shinkansen for Odawara in 30min. From there, take Hakone Tozan transports to explore Hakone. A slower but cheaper option would be to head to Shinjuku for the Odakyu express train for Hakone Yumoto.

Driving is not recommended as you'd hv to go thru' very busy roads and expressways to reach Hakone. Not much chance that you can reach there faster and less stressful than by Shinkansen train.

check out hyperdia.com for train schedules, fares etc.

Thank you! This is super useful! From Odawara, where is the best place to settle, with luggages, before we moved out to visit Mt Fuji or Hakone area? Our main objective is just Mt Fuji and Onsen. Just got to pray that the weather is good for us to be able to see Mt Fuji...

Just send your luggage from Disney resort to hakone hotel/ryokan via Taqbin delivery service 1 day in advance. This way you can travel lighter with personal valuables for daytime visits.

In Hakone, Mt Fuji can be seen from the ropeway, lake Ashi etc. If weather permits.

When is your travel ?
