Hakone Ropeway, Hakone-machi
(4/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Getting there is a pain, took 2 hours to get to the base. The process is crammed and tiring. Squashed in like sardines. Hakone is overrated. Avoid. 
  • Big headed to owakudani Hakone ropeway is the best! Foliage was still good, and the contrast of green trees and blue sky was very beautiful. Phreatic eruption at here and there to smoke? Water vapor? Seems just around the corner but I'm nervous.

  • As the transport routes in Hakone ut automotive fast and good. View. If purchasing the Hakone pass instructions, but if you want to save should be better.
