The best way to travel in Hakone. Excellent view. Great view of Mt Fuji. Try to plan an overnite stay at an onsen near the Ropeway, you can really enjoy the area.

Perpetually closed for seismic activity. Most hotels and tourist sites in Hakone do not advertise this. While there are other things to do in the area, this is a major draw.

Visited this attraction as part of a tour so I imagine it may have been heavily subsidized. It's beautiful, that's all I can say and you must visit. Depending on the weather conditions you may or may not see Mount Fiji. You'll enjoy the cable car ride and the short hike up. There's a nice restaurant and souvenir shop as... More

We actually saw Mount Fuji from the ropeway, covered in snow still, on the way up but on the return trip it was covered in cloud.

We enjoyed the gondola ride and the view going to Owakudani volcanic valley. Im afraid of heights but it's worth the try and it was an experience worth remembering.

A little jaunt up the 'rope way' to see a view of the lake. At the top there is a Shinto shrine. After that there are walks along the hill top and then back down. The attraction I believe is a view of Mount Fuji, but at this time of year you'd have to be pretty lucky.

A great way of transport, and the cars aren't as small as other ropeways I've used in Japan. Provides good views and fells safe despite the height.

We were so lucky to have a bright sunny day & lovely views of Mt Fuji. It was fun "flying" over the sulphur mines in our gondola car.

I am seeing reviews posted recently but the ropeway has been closed since May due to volcanic activity. It is not expected to reopen in the near future. The majority of Hakone area is not affected however and is safe to visit. Check websites for updated information.
