Hi. hello.how many people? if u like to see cherry blossome then maybe beging of April. or I could take u guys a big park .the name is "Umino nakamichi" they has a aquarium too:) and big rose or flower garden and lil zpp too:) i have a car. and i can take u guys anywhere as much as possible.
If you have a car or access to one Hakone is best, there are many hot springs, museums and shopping in this area, you can see Mt. Fuji and visit Lake Ashinoko, if you go by train to here (Odakyu Line from Shinjuku) 90 mins. you'll will need to use a bus which really limits your ability to see very much.

Your next choice is The Izu area, Most people go to Atami or Itoh using the Tokaido Line from Tokyo Station or Shinagawa Station 80-90mins. $10-15/person one way.
once you arrive, everything is in walking distance but there
are a lot of hills, mostly hot spring and shopping only in this area but it is a really nice place and it is near the sea.

expect to spend about $20-30/person on transport
about $10-15/person for hot spring entrance.
lunch is up to you but on average $10-20/person will cover you.

Have a great trip.

You might also want to try the hot springs in Nikko. It is a famous historical area and the scenery is lovely, so you could do something else beside going to hot springs.

Traveling costs would reach about 50$ to 100$ per person, depending of which type of train you choose.
Entrance costs would be around 5$/person.

If you are interested only in hot springs, there is also an option inside Tokyo, but that could be a bit pricey. It is a famous Hot Spring House. This is their website, just in case:

Hope this helps you out.
