Odawara

3.2
Castles · Gardens · Historic Sites
Flanked on two sides by the Hakone Mountains, Odawara serves as a popular base for visits to the nearby Hakone hot springs, although the city boasts its own hot spring, as well as a scenic coastal area known for its clear, unspoiled waters. Sightseeing in Odawara mostly revolves around its historic castle, the adjoining museum, and the surrounding park known for its picturesque cherry and plum trees in spring. You can easily use a trip to Odawara as a base for exploring the nearby national park; in town, sample local delicacies, such as dried fish, salted plums, and "kamaboko," a type of processed white fish. Use our Japan online route planner to arrange the details of your trip to Odawara and other destinations.
