Took the ropeway to the top of the mountain. 1.7 degrees Celcius and blowing a gale, but the view was worth it. Mt Fuji as clear as can be, in all it's grandeur. Then took the ropeway down to the lake and the Pirate Ship cruise to the other side (19km), Freezing cold but worth it all. It was a... More

On the way to Owakudani Valley, free using Hakone pass, travel in weekdays and there is not much crowd. needless to say the view is great as mention by many others. Owakudani Valley is a huge valley. In Dec, the last trip ends at 415pm, Other months 515pm. Enjoy the view....cant go wrong on this

Amazing views of the lake and of Mount Fuji on a clear day! Be sure to purchase the 2-day Hakone "free" pass. For ¥4000 you get unlimited use of buses sightseeing boat ropeway cable car and trains in the Hakone region. And can include train ride from Tokyo for a little more cost.

On a lucky day when you take Hokene Ropeway, you might see Mt. Fuji which is jaw dropping. You gonna enjoy the view of mountain and surrounding.

This would be amazing and so picturesque during the right weather. Sadly for us a storm moved in and blocked the views. Certainly worth your time especially if you have the Hakone Free Pass

Based on reviews we had seen on the organized tours being rushed, we decided to make our own day trip on a clear and sunny Monday to avoid the weekend crowds. Tip - check the weather before you go. Up early to catch the metro to the Tokyo city terminal and bought tickets at the office (english spoken) for the... More

The Ropeway is what is known as a Cable Car in most other parts of the world - not a rope in sight! The Ropeway starts at Sounzan which is the terminus of the Hakone-Tozan Cable Car and which would be called a... More

I'm sure the views were beautiful behind the clouds. We traveled by bus, train and ropeway for the day sightseeing. What a fun way to travel. There were a few breaks in the clouds and it was really fun to be able to see all the way around.
