On our second day in Hakone, we went for a stroll around Hakone-Yumoto and watched two famous waterfalls guarded by a duck with a red ribbon. It gladly accepted bread crumbs as a bribe for letting us pass.
After the waterfalls, we took the train bound for Gora to pay a visit to the Hakone Open Air Museum. As the train climbed the mountain, the weather got worse and worse. Not only was there even more clouds stopping us from seeing mount Fuji, it also started raining! Since we didn’t feel like visiting the museum while it was raining, we took a detour for a couple of hours and came back later when the weather was a bit better.
If you ever find yourself in Hakone, I highly recommend visiting this museum. The sculptures really are something! This is one of my favourites and it kind of reminds me of the “Silence in the Library” episode of Doctor Who.
