Hakone has long been known as a stopping point along the famous Tokaido Road. The steep hills and mountains surrounding Hakone made it a natural place for travelers to stop and rest before continuing on to their destination. Over the years, many services were made available to the travelers including hotels and resorts. Because of the sporadic traffic, the people in Hakone needed something to occupy their time and add to their income.
