    • It seems that a free bus operates between the mall and JR Gotemba Station every 15 minutes, stopping at the Tomei-Gotemba IC along the way. You can consider taking the direct bus from Hakone Yumoto to the Gotemba Outlets (bus lines V and W) operated by Odakyu Hakone Highway Bus. Hakone Tozan Bus (bus lines S, L and M) is another good option covered under the  Hakone Free Pass which can be used to travel the distance directly.
