A Full-Day of Hakone History

Western Area Multi day 43

See Japan the way Commodore Perry did, as you enter Kurihama Port, where the Perry Expedition arrived, on a car ferry. Observe how Yokohama became after Japan started to move towards a new age, brought out of many years of isolation. You'll also be visiting Hakone, the land of the demise of Princess Kazunomiya, the heroine who experienced many unfortunate events due to the end of the Edo period. On day three, from the site of the Namamugi Incident where a Satsuma samurai from the late-Edo period murdered an Englishman, you'll be visiting many places linked to the Meiji Restoration, westernization, and the opening of the port, almost bringing you back in time to the Meiji period.
