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.

Great circle route. Could not eat the black eggs though. Too smelly to have an appitite there. Spent a full day on the rope way

Great way to get around, enjoyed all the various forms of transport on the Hakone round trip. Lots of things to see along the way.

If you find yourself with time in Hakone this is probably the best option for sightseeing. The ropeway is fast and provides great views. The highlight of our visit to this region. Highly recommend.

Having been to Hakone previously, I knew I wanted to get back on the ropeway. Sadly at this time, most of it was under works, so we could only go from Gora to the main stop Owakudani. I was not happy as we were not told this when we were purchasing our Freepass the day before. We had to catch... More

Before our trip to Japan, I did a lot of studies and asked my friends who lived in Japan for a long time. They told me that Hakone will be a fun place for a quick trip. We love all the transportations around Hakone, only the bus was a little bit challenge for us. Ropeway is one of fun things... More

From the 'top' of Japan, the Ropeway and cable car (type of light railway) combine to encircle Mt Fuji. The area boasts a lot of natural timbered scenery - very green, almost lush, and similar, in a stretch, to our rainforest scenery. Great views of Mt Fuji and there are half a dozen little places to hop-on/hop-off along the way.... More
