Hakone Ropeway, Hakone-machi

(4/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very affordable and with a lovely walk up top to a Shinto Shrine, stunning views of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi.  more »
  • From the mountain great to owakudani from 4/14 in suspension runs through agency bus. I went on a weekday so little instead of waiting for get on the bus and arrived in about 10 minutes the crowded weekend ride which can be time-consuming, buses take about an hour and a half. Unfortunately the weather was bad, the weather is good during the week you want to come again.

  • Definitely worth a trip, especially in fog when the ropes to disappear and one thinks that one is in the clouds. Have made this trip at two Japan tours and will make even a third time.
