Hakone & Odakyu set plan

For those who hates looking up tarriffs especially with complicated price calendars and tables will appreciate this KNT package tour to Hakone. Try comparing it with other JR rail packages pamphlets and you will find it easily comprehensible to the average user. The tour planner has decided not to raise the price for Fridays as such the pricing is very straight forward, with weekdays and Sundays being the cheapest and more expensive for Saturdays and holidays. What is offered? There are a total of 23 onsen ryokans included, complete with dinner and breakfast. You can reserve accommodations alone or with the Odakyu Romance Car set plan. Odakyu Romance Car departs from Shinjuku Station and takes 85 minutes to get you to Hakone Yumoto Station.

Now the perks, should you be taking the Odakyu set plan, free one-way baggage service will be offered allowing you to do sightseeing without worrying to drag your bags along. However with restriction to weight & size of baggage and to observe the pick up time. You also get to choose your choice of main dish for your dinner(all Japanese cruisine) during booking. Other perks include free drink coupons to special priced entrance ticket to attractions and for local ropeway rides.

Illuminations and light ups

Another brilliant creation of products by JTB to attract more travellers visiting places with well-known events celebrating Christmas, Year end and New Year with illuminations and light ups. Should you already be thinking of visit Sapporo, Hakodate, Otaru, Okinawa, Nagasaki, Kobe or just a nearby trip to Yokohama, do grab a copy of the "Illuminations theme special" to compare the offers. When you book your tickets under this plan you are likely to be given rooms with a good view of the city illuminations which you don't as oppose to taking a regular plan. Other than that there isn't much to add, with your usual dining options perhaps with just a little bit of extra touch to add to the festive mood.
