Outside of Tokyo, we rode the ropeway (an aerial tram) up an active volcanic area in Owakudani, and journied on a short hike through sulphur fumes that takes you to the steaming pools of water. Local vendors boil eggs that turn inky black from the sulphur and local legend says they add 7 years to your life. After our snack, we took the ropeway down the opposite side of Mount Hakone to Lake Ashinoko, where lake was calm, views beautiful, and where we experienced one of the most peaceful boat rides I’ve ever taken. Our Hakone Satchel is one of our more sophisticated shapes to reflect this atmosphere. The multi-functionality of the bag with its top handles and crossbody strap make it versatile and easy to use during an active, outdoor-focused day, and sophisticated enough to carry to a more formal, quiet dinner in the evening.
Thank you for choosing an August handbag. With this purchase you have donated a backpack to a child in need in the Los Angeles School District. These handbags have been crafted with natural leather and materials that have unique variations in color and texture. In rare cases, the naked finishing of these materials may transfer color to other items, or pick up the color from items rubbed against them. These qualities add to the beauty of the bag and should not be thought of as imperfections. Avoid contact w/ water, grease, perfumes, or cosmetics. If your bag should get wet, wipe it with a soft neutral cloth to absorb the moisture. Please treat your bag with love and care, and Enjoy!
