On the way to Hakone, Ronjie brought us to see Odawara Castle. It's just a few minutes' walk from the Odawara train station on the Odakyu line. Some photos:

|This is it! Odawara Castle!|
We were pressed for time so we didn't enter anymore. Maybe next time?
We had quick lunch at Hakosoba in the Odawara Station before proceeding to Hakone.

Off to Hakone! I'll be posting photos of our Hakone sightseeing trip in my next blog entry. :)
