Sengokuhara Susuki Grass Fields (仙石原ススキ草原)
The gentle slopes of the Sengokuhara area are covered with Japanese pampas grass and Sengokuhara is considered a top Hakone sightseeing destination in fall. Selected for such lists as “Kanagawa’s 50 Most Picturesque Spots” and “Kanagawa’s 100 Most Famous Flower Locations,” each year in autumn the area bustles with visitors. From late September, the ears of the pampas grass begin to turn color, and by late autumn visitors can enjoy the site of a veritable golden carpet covering the fields. The Sengokuhara Pampas Grass Festival is held in the area in late September each year. Take the Hakone Tozan Bus and get off at the “Sengoku Kogen” stop. In fall, a Sengokuhara Susuki Bus provides transportation to the area.

Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
