travel between Odawara (Hakone) & Yudanaka Onsen

How can I travel between Odawara (Hakone) & Yudanaka Onsen & then onto Kyoto. I have used a Japan Rail pass before & found it an excellent way to travel.

thank you


Hi there!

I think the best ways is to travel to Nagano first via Tokyo on the shinkansen. From Nagano you will need to use the local (non-JR) Nagano dentetsu trains to Yudanaka onsen.

Hope this helps!

I am planing to travel from Tokyo to Nikko, staying there 1 night, then I want to travel to Yudanaka Onnsen stay there 2 nights & then travel to Kyoto. I confused my place names in my first question as I meant to ask from Nikko to Yudanaka Onsen. sorry for the confusion.

Hi Lynne,

Here is the Route from Nikko to Yudanaka Onsen, it is not very different from Odawara, as the best thing to do is taking the Shinkansen to Nagano and from there use the Nagano Electric Railway to get to Yudanaka.

Let me know if you more questions!
