Hakone is a truely beautiful area. The top of the ropeway provides spectacular views of Mt Fuji and the lakes, but we were on a day trip and by the time we got to the town itself everything was closed and we only spent about 15 minutes at the lake. This is a beautiful spa area, so if you have... More

The ropeway was pretty expensive but we enjoyed the view over the volcano and Mt. Fuji. If we had more time, we could take the ropeway to Ashinoko.

Much disappointment that the Ropeway isn't operating in peak season due to the recent volcanic activity. However we were impressed with the temporary arrangements to get from Sounzan to Togendai and the sightseeing pirate ship. There are buses running a temporary service regularly (about every 20 minutes each way) and the trip takes no more than 15 minutes - less... More

Spent two nights in Gora and took the Hakone ropeway down to the lake. Fantastic wiews of the mountains! Buy a one day pass, it's really worth it, and you can go in any directions by the ropeway and trains, buses and ships within Hakone.

This literally took our breath away as we breached the hillside on the ropeway and saw Mount Fuji in front of us! What a special way to view the mountain. Cheap and easy to use.

Try the evening ride for the different feel of Mt Fuji love it! Less people and stay in the hotel that is near to the Tazan cable car. Don't miss the last ropeway back to the hotel!

Not much more I can say, other than how lovely the views were. The queues can get fairly long but like everything else in Japan they are orderly and move quickly.

Very beautiful and comfortable journey. Can enjoy the breathtaking view of Owakudani valley, mount fuji, hakone lake and hakone national park from the ropeway. The cost is covered by Hakone free pass. Overall highly recommend for a day trip

Nice neighborhood scene, very serene. We were at the station early morning so although we would like some breakfast, stores were still closed
