I'll be visiting Odawara Castle on Oct 31 (Saturday) on my way from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku. I need some clarification please..
1. I know that the castle closes at 5pm. Is this just for the entrance into the castle building or the ground as well? I would like to hang around the castle ground until twilight for an opportunity to take photo of the castle during the 'blue' hour. Wondering if the ground remains opened after 5pm?
2. What time is twilight at the end of October?
3. I plan to ride the Odakyu Romancecar back to Shinjuku. Can I purchase the Romancecar from Hakone Yumoto to Shinjuku but break the journey and jump off for a few hours at Odawara? Or I need to go from Hakone Yumoto by Hakone Tozan Railway to Odawara and board the Romancecar from Odawara to Shinjuku?
4. Any recommendation for dinner option near the Odawara Station?
What's the most interesting thing to do in Odawara if you only have a few hours?
Hi all again
A follow up on our previous question regarding the Hotel Orange.
We have also found the following hotels that are within our budget, but cant find their email addresses either. We dont really want to ring them as it will be to costly, so at least if we could get an email address it might be a start.
The hotels are:
a)Hotel Orange http://www.orange-build.com/
b)Hotel Tozan hakone-tozan.co.jp/hotel/oda...
c)Odawara Terminal Hotel http://www.minoya450.co.jp/t-hotel/
If anybody could supply email addresses for these it would be really appreciated as we are really struggling to find a hotel in Odawara.
Many thanks in advance
We are really struggling to find any accomodation in Odawara. But we have found a place called the Orange Hotel near the JR station. As their reservation page is in Japanese it makes it pretty hard for us.
Would anybody be able to find us a contact email address for this hotel.
Many Thanks in advance
We think we have decided to have a couple of nights in Odawara. But we are having a nightmare trying to find budget accomodation in Odawara. All the websites are in Japanese. Does anybody know of any budget accomodation near the Odawara JR Station or a good English Website that has Odawara accomodation.
We also have a similar question for Nikko.

I have a backpack (slightly larger than school go-ers size)
and a check-in luggage of about 30kg capacity.
Does JR Odawara station have lockers big enough for my luggage?
What are the dimensions of the lockers available?
How much do they cost?
I'm just making a day trip from Tokyo to Odawara/Hakone area and will proceed to Kyoto afterwards.
