About Luggage

As the roads in Hakone area are very winding, also there is no enough space for large luggages in the buses, we recommend you to bring only small luggages for visiting Hakone and use a delivery service for large suitcases to next destination if possible.

“Hakone Baggage Delivery Service” is another option. It can deliver your luggage from Hakone-Yumoto station to our Guest House.
