3. Relax in an Onsen, Hakone

Relax in an Onsen, Hakone

Head to Hakone (aka Spa Town) to seek out delightful hot tubs overlooking the lush green mountains. Once you get over the embarrassment of being naked (bikinis are not allowed), you will simply love Japan’s spa culture. I went to a few onsens, each one had a range of steam and sauna facilities and were set in tranquil surroundings. After a day of hiking, you will love being able to strip off and soak away the day.
