Hakone Tourist Guide Association

The charm of Hakone is its hot springs, nature, and history. The Hakone Tourist Guide Association is here to help you discover these charms. The guides are here to help you understand a Hakone better. Apply for this service and make your trip to Hakone a memorable one. On April 1, 2008, the “Hakone Sightseeing Guide Program” was established with the aim of contributing to the promotion of tourism in Hakone by educating visitors to the town about the nature, history, and culture of Hakone. Learning about the history, culture, charm of Hakone, and educating people about the importance of nature is one of the guiding principles of this association.

Hakone is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan, but the activities of tour guides are not well known. With the establishment of the Hakone Tourist Guide Association, we hope that first-time visitors to Hakone will enjoy themselves and feel safe. And that repeat visitors will make new discoveries by being guided and that they will come to love Hakone more deeply through contact with the guides.

Currently, the association consists of about 20 members. We sincerely look forward to welcoming people from Hakone and beyond who would like to guide us around Hakone. Hakone Tourist Guide Association
