We just LOVE the HAKONE ROPEWAY...we've done it 3 times and each time is different depending on the weather. This last trip it was PEAK leaf season AND it was CLEAR ....felt like you could reach out and touch Fuji. Get the HAKONE FREE PASS when you visit Hakone...so easy. My 11 year old loved this when he was 4... More

Great scenery and on a clear day, great view of Mt. Fuji from the cars and Owakudani. A little bit of a tourist trap around the sulphur springs.

The is an quick way to the top and some great views. The first day on our trip just to Owakudani we had an excellent view of Mt Fuji. The second day on our trip to Lake Ashi, it was beautiful but Mt Fuji was wearing her mask.

It was a lot longer than we expected, but was a lot of fun and a great way to get a view of Mt Fuji. Make sure you ask when the last trip back is, as it closes earlier than you would expect.

I bought the Hakone free pass which allowed free access of Hakone area's transport including the ropeway. I basically planned my route so that I get to try out all of them. This is cool. Try it!

A really nice way to discover Hakone, and you can clearly see the Mt Fuji if you are lucky with the weather. It is wonderful!!

The day we went, the whole area was shrouded in low cloud and mist and it was raining hard. I know one can't do anything about the weather, but the cautionary tale here is that if, like us, you're on a busy guided holiday, you may be unlucky and you won't have time to go back and try again.

We had a lovely ride through amazing fall colors. We watched a u tube of the ride which was of an uncomfortable and no view day. We had views, we loved it. Yes, we had the lucky black egg up on top--yumm.

The ropeway is a nice way to get to several interesting spots in Hakone national park. It is extremely efficiently organized, so even with plenty of tourists getting around is fairly quick. On your way, keep an eye out for mount Fuji. We were lucky enough that, on a cloudy day, the sun just came out while we were on... More
