A little jaunt up the 'rope way' to see a view of the lake. At the top there is a Shinto shrine. After that there are walks along the hill top and then back down. The attraction I believe is a view of Mount Fuji, but at this time of year you'd have to be pretty lucky.

A great way of transport, and the cars aren't as small as other ropeways I've used in Japan. Provides good views and fells safe despite the height.

We were so lucky to have a bright sunny day & lovely views of Mt Fuji. It was fun "flying" over the sulphur mines in our gondola car.

I am seeing reviews posted recently but the ropeway has been closed since May due to volcanic activity. It is not expected to reopen in the near future. The majority of Hakone area is not affected however and is safe to visit. Check websites for updated information.

I am sure the view from the Ropeway would be fantastic under normal circumstances, but when the weather closes in and you realise you are inside a cloud of freezing fog and snow, it's not so much fun! The lake is lovely, and the trip across the lake is very nice; just a shame the clouds came in before we... More

Fun way to see a lot. We enjoyed the Hakone Free Pass so we did the whole ropeway and stopped to get black eggs (yummy)

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.
