Took the Hakone free rail pass from the Odakyu line at Shinjuku station. There is a counter selling the passes right opposite the ticket gate at the Southern entrance. The pass allows free access to all transportation during the trip and discounts on some entrance fees. On reaching Hakone bus drop off point, the first impression was how quaint is... More

My husband and I were shocked at the length of the lines. We made the mistake of taking our suit cases with us ! It was a nightmare taking us 3 hours longer than expected! I wish we took the bus.

Hakone is a beautiful place...maybe more beautiful than if you go near to Mt Fuji...cause you can see Mt Fuji here, and you can explore many attractions here. If you buy Hakone pass, you can take any transportations here anytime...and for Hakone Ropeway before you go to Owakudani is the best transportation here, where you can see all scenery of... More

The crowds are huge, the lines are long and the experience in my opinion does not justify the time or expense to stay overnight in the area. That being said, I should qualify that we travelled through Japan in late March in hope of seeing the Plum & Cheery blossoms only to be bitterly disappointed as Winter was still very... More

This is just one of the great experiences in the Harkone area, but a tip if visiting the area for a day or two a MUST purchase the Harkone Free Pass. You can then got on the ropeway more than once as the first day we were in the area we could see nothing. No views of Lake Ashi or... More

Hakone free pass made moving around the area easily. Ropeway was good, but sadly couldn't see anything. Heavy rain & fog spoiled the trip.

We paid 1880 yen per person, roundtrip for the ropeway to Owakudani to see the place but it was raining heavily with strong wind where we have to leave after waiting for close to an hour. We could only see smoke coming out of the ground. Anyhow, we managed to have a taste of the unique black eggs and bought... More

Visited on March 2015 with a group of family and friends. Bought 4000Y Hakone Free Pass for 2days at Odawara Station. Had a tour of Hakone going and coming back to Hakone-Yumoto station. Had this to reach out Owakudani Valley, and surprisingly, we had the best view of Mt. Fuji for a while. Clear blue sky on the background, with... More

Grab the hakone free pass and do owakundani and see the lake. This is the easiest and most scenic way to see the sights of the surrounding hakone. If you want to miss the bus loads of loud Chinese tourists, get up early and jump on!

It was amazing to travel around here to see Mount Fuji from the ropeway, the beautiful Lake Hakone and the surroundings Onsens. A great way of discovering the area.
