At the Yugawara Ume Forest (湯河原梅林) 4000 Japanese flowering plum trees (梅 ume ) blanket the lower south slopes of Mt. Makuyama ( 幕山). Especially during February and early March, these trees are covered with sweetly-scented red and white blossoms, and the area is crowded with visitors. Besides the beautiful plum blossoms, Plum Banquet festivities (梅の宴) include traditional food stalls, souvenir stands, and light-up floodlights for evening activities.
Mt. Makuyama (幕山) is also a popular hiking and climbing destination throughout the year. Makuyama means “Curtain Mountain”, and the south slope of the mountain has steep curtain-like cliffs. For casual day-hikers, however, a gradual zig-zag trail from the famous Yugawara Japanese Plum Orchard (湯河原梅林) leads to a flat and open summit at 625m. There, the view includes Sagami Bay (相模湾), the offshore Izu Islands (伊豆諸島), and the nearby Manazuru Peninsula (真鶴半島). From the summit, a northern path descends to a route that circles back around the base of the mountain, and this trail eventually follows the Niisakigawa river (新崎川) back to the hiking start-point (幕山登山口).
During the Plum Festival season: a Hakone Tozan bus service runs from the Yugawara Railway Station (JR Tōkaidō Line) to/from the Makuyama Park. From 9 a.m. onwards, this service runs three times per hour from the #3 bus stop
During the rest of the year: take the bus bound for Kajiya (鍛冶屋) from the Yugawara Railway Station and get off at the Morishitakōen-mae (森下公園前) bus stop. The Makuyama Park is then a 2 km. walk from the bus stop, along a road that parallels the Niisakigawa river. (At certain times, a bus connects Kajiya and the Makuyama Park — enquire at the Yugawara Tourist Information Center at the Yugawara Railway Station for bus schedules and maps).
For driving by car: in Yugawara on the seafront Route 135, turn inland at the traffic signal labeled “幕山公園 (梅林) 入口 Makuyama Park (Bairin) Ent.”, and drive 4 km. to the Makuyama Park. (From the Odawara direction on Route 135, there is also a large blue overhead road sign just before the traffic signal that reads “湯河原梅林 Yugawarabairin 幕山公園 Makuyama Park 4 km. → “).

When the weather is fine that is. I think I've been here more than 50 times. There is no public transport and you need a car (or a motorcycle)to get here. You have a better chance in winter and also in the morning rather than in the afternoon. 30% or less chance if it's mid summer afternoon for example i would say to see Mt. Fuji. Depending on the time and dates, you also see a lot of sport cars and motorcycles. Those people drive up Mazda turnpike to get here. Souvenior shops, cafe, noodle restaurant, etc. Outside there's a camera stand/pole if you we ant to take a picture with My. Fuji and don't have a tripod (or just use your selfie stick of course if it's a smartphone).
After this you can go downhill to lake Ashi area.

This is a joke of a museum. I have never ever seen a museum where the museum posts the price of the art pieces under each piece. Also, the displays are haphazardly put together with Japanese/Chinese (fake) pottery mixed with terrible paintings. Stay away. Do not come here. It is not worth the money.

This garden is famous for plum during February and early March,
when its in season.you can take city bus from Yugawara JR station or by car. very easy access. There are many different shades of pink all along hill when you
enter the park. There are food booths by the entrance, selling Japanese snacks, drinks and sweets to the tourist by local farmers.

Coming from a place with white and sandy Beaches this volcanic sand and corns looks not so appetizing for a swim, so we did not bath here. Further we were staying in a Ryokan with hot spa's so we preferred to use these instead.
But the beach attracts divers and surfers and also we believe that the locals will use the beach at summertime.

The falls are close to the road, you can see from the road. Worth about 10 minutes of your time. Nice shady stream valley but the building at the road needs to clean up the junk. It really detracts from the natural surroundings.
