Eggs are boiled at the hot springs and turn... More

The Hakone Ropeway is a nice experience to view Hakone and Lake Ashi. We take a ferry ride from Hakone and the ropeway station is located the first stop. The Ropeway cabin can carry 110 people which is pretty big. It is stable and you can view golf course, lake scenery along the way. There is an abandoned shrine at... More

We enjoyed taking Hakone Ropeway for 18minutes or so. It was a clear day so we could get a sight of Mount Fuji, the greeneries and Lake Ashi. Hakone Ropeway is one of the highlight of Hakone. It is highly recommended to have the ride while staying in Hakone.

We were very lucky clear blue sky's so he view was stunning of Mount Fuji. But the time we returned later in the day the fog was so thick you could not see 50 yards in front. Great day out. Will remember it for ever.

Started by a bullet train from Kyoto to Mishima, bus to Hakonemachi, pirate ferry to Togendai, ropeway to Owakudani. Cabin is quiet big, ventilation was poor, but lucky the temperature was low. Like the idea of ropeway, higher than tree, good look to surrounding hills, unique views. As you know, if you are coming from Togendai, there will be one... More

Service was good, we didn't have to wait long enough for our turn. However, it is quite hot inside the cable car and it relies on the chilly weather outside for ventilation. Best thing is that we get to see top of Mount Fuji. Best to go early in the morning.
