Tokyo is the capital of Japan, the center of the Greater Tokyo Area, and the largest metropolitan area of Japan. It is the seat of the Japanese government and the Imperial Palace, and the home of the Japanese Imperial Family. Tokyo is located in the Kantō region on the southeastern side of the main island Honshu and includes the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands. Tokyo Metropolis was formed in 1943 from the merger of the former Tokyo Prefecture and the city of Tokyo.

The economy of Hakone is strongly dominated by the tourist industry. Hakone is noted for its onsen hot spring resorts, which attract both Japanese and international visitors due to its proximity to the greater Tokyo metropolis and to Mount Fuji. Sights include the volcanically active Ōwakudani geysers and Hakone Shrine on the shore of the lake, as well as the Hakone Botanical Garden of Wetlands. In April the cherry blossoms and in autumn the Miscanthus sinensis are noted sights.

Owakudani Valley

Description : In Ōwakudani Valley, you can smell sulfurous fumes and see clouds of steam rise from crevasses. Here, you can sample eggs hard-boiled in the sulfurous hot spring water. They are unique in that their shells have turned black from the boiling, and there is a local legend that eating one such an egg will add seven years to your life.
