#2 of 20 in Sightseeing in Hakone-machi
Lookout Tourist Spot
Enjoy a view of Mt. Fuji and the surrounding countryside by riding Hakone Ropeway, a sightseeing gondola linking Sounzan with Togendai. Zip along the 4 km (2.5 mi) route to marvel at the volcanic hills rising beneath you. At the terminus, admire the blue waters of nearby Lake Ashi, and see if you can spot occasional fumes rising from the neighboring Owakudani volcanic valley. Be sure to check the website for the ropeway's status, as some stations may temporarily close due to volcanic activity.

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
