Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our driver decided we should stop here on our quick visit to Hanoke .
    The place is incredibly peaceful, still and tranquil. I loved the rankan buddhas everywhere with their various shapes, sizes and expressions. Wished I could have stayed longer. I will be back!

    We were staying in Moto-Hakone and took the bus to first Hatajuku to look around and then partway back to stop at the famous tea house. We had tea and baked treats at the atmospheric teahouse constructed with huge beams, and then walked along the stone walkway, the "Tokiado Highway", back to Lake Ashe and Moto-Hakone. It was steep at first and then downhill. It was a beautiful walk but especially on the downhill side we found it difficult to walk on the uneven sized rocks that paved the walkway. I think this experience is an amazing historical walk and was worth it from the teahouse. I don't think I would want to walk more because of the way it is constructed.

    A short hike to a beautiful setting. The falls aren’t huge but they’re worth the trip! Get off the tour bus route and venture here for some relaxation.

    This was a bucket list experience for me that I will remember forever. Iconic cars at home on iconic roads.

    I drove the FD RX7 on the Flash drive. The pace is atmospheric, giving you a chance to feel how gritty the roads are and absorb the incredible setting.

    The briefing, instructions and pace make you feel safe and confident on these rough roads. But you still get a chance to understand the potential of the cars, and appreciate why locals flock here for spirited drives.

    The boys at Fun2Drive have created something really special. I was particularly blessed to have a dry session and crystal clear views of Fuji from the Hakone Skyline. I was in such awe that I didn't have the words to express my excitement until hours after, absolutely sensational.

    Hiroko did a great job of showing us what we were interested in and tailoring our trip. She was very personable and had answers to everything we asked!
