A beautiful hot spring town nestled on a hillside
One of the more newly developed areas of Hakone , Gora was nothing more than a barren wasteland filled with rocks until the beginning of the 1900s. It is said that the name Gora comes from these rocks since they resemble tortoise shells, or kora in Japanese. Following the discovery of a hot spring and the construction of a railway, the area developed into a famous hot spring town.
How to Get There
Gora is accessible from Tokyo via train.
