The Hakone Freepass is a discount excursion ticket offering full coverage of the popular sightseeing destinations in Hakone. Hakone Freepass allows you to get on and off freely within a specified area, as well as providing discount admission to various attractions in the area, and also includes return transportation
on the Odakyu Line.
The Fuji-Hakone Pass is valid for three days, available only for non-Japanese tourists, and can be used for traveling throughout the popular Fuji-Hakone area.
The pass is available in the set that includes a round trip from Tokyo (Shinjuku) at discount prices (Odakyu Line, Chuo Highway Bus) and one limited to the Fuji-Hakone area that does not come with round trip tickets.
They both allow you to freely use designated forms of public transportation in the Fuji-Hakone area and give you discounts at about ninety facilities (over fifty in the Hakone area and over forty in the Fuji area) such as art museums and restaurants.
