Ito— 3 nights
Not too far from the capital, Ito has developed a reputation as a resort town, with a fair portion of its area lying within a national park.You've now added Sugikuni Shoten to your itinerary. Bring the kids along to Mount Omuro and Omuro Mountain Lift. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ito: Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi), Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Natural History (in Odawara) and Hakone-machi (Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) & The Hakone Open-Air Museum). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Mount Fuji, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shogetsu-in, relax in the rural setting at Yes! Strawberry, and get to know the resident critters at Izu Shaboten Zoo.
