What is Sustainable Tourism?

Sustainable Tourism in Hakone

Sustainable tourism in Hakone is meant to protect and find balance with the "characteristics of the volcanic terrain".
We aim to carefully protect hot springs, culture and history, the abundant flora and fauna, endemic flora and insects, the uniqueness of the caldera terrain, and the outstanding view of Mt. Fuji.

Green Destinations

Hakone Town has been selected as the part of the Green Destinations* Top 100 Stories list for the second consecutive year.
*Green Destinations is an international organization that certifies sustainable tourism destinations.
