Odawara is a nice little city in the old Tokaido road connecting Edo ( modern Tokyo) to Kyoto..
Just before Hakone, a well known place to watch Fuji-san, you can go to Odawara from Tokyo in only 1h-1h30..
here is a little walk in the city the day before the hojo godai matsuri 2010
We had a very nice weather for the 2 days in Odawara and it was great walking on the street.
