This part of the trip was known as an "air gondola" or in English a cable car. Unfortuately due to low cloud and rain it was impossible to see nay views which I imagine would have been spectacular. Even the cable cars a few yards away coming back down were shrouded in the mist.

The two part rope way in Hakone is wonderful to ride. The ascent from Sounzan to Owakudani offers interesting view of the volcanic remains down while the descent from Owakudani to Togendai has the Mt Fuji & Lake Ashi to mesmerize.

We went there today and had perfect weather. Surely recommend the 4000¥ 2 day pass - even you just go for half a day. Did the tour Brad recommended plus the Ancient Ceder walk after the first boat stop. I wouldnt recommend to go there on a rainy day. One important note: Try hard to get seats in the busses... More

Coming back 30 years after our first visit, the place looks prettymuch the same except that the buildings were obviously done up and a whole lot of foods and gadgets are now for sale instead of the volcanic eggs only. I was led to believe that we can see mount Fuji on a clear day but the sunny day did... More

Smooth ride up the mountains but it was covered by thick fog. Then over the top, the view was crystal clear and the sun came out. Beautiful view and worthwhile. Mt Fuji was a magic sight.

The highlight of this ropeway ride is the awesome view of Mt Fuji. As we travel in mid April, the mountains are still bare, it will probably be very nice during fall. All more time for queuing during peak.

Interesting view but remember last trip is at 5:15 pm and they don't tell you as you climb up the mountainside by train to reach the ropeway so make sure the train and cable car get you there before 5:15pm

Visited Owakudani through the ropeway. Between each station there is an 8 minute journey. Can see a nice view of lake Ashi with the pirate ship. Mount Fuji is also visible from a distance.

Amazing views of Hakone and surrounding mountains, weather plays a massive part in this, if not an absolute clear day you will see little if any of Mt. Fuji, but still well worth a look as Its surrounds are just as spectacular. If you manage to get there on a clear day a must is the round trip from Odawara... More

Worth the trip. Try and black eggs boiled by sulfur springs at the top. The boat trips at the bottom are fun to take.
