        After visiting Odawara Castle, we move up to Hakone Shrine, Lake Ashi, Gotemba, and Lake Yamanaka along Mt. Fuji. You can stop over at some of these sites.
        After our lunch (ramen, udon, curry rice, etc), we move to our final destination, a place called “Sawanoi Open Air Garden”. This is next to the sake brewery and has a really nice nature atmosphere along the river, you can hear the birds singing. They have a tasting bar where you can try some of their original Sake. Each cup of Sake starts at around 200 yen, and that includes the Japanese sake cup itself. So if you feel like having another one, just bring your first cup to the counter, and you will get another one for 100 yen (refill).
