I went up here during last year's spring visit. I went there on a weekday but it was a very long queue to get the tickets for the cable car. The cable car ride was amazing though i have to stand all the way up...More

Great view of the lake and mount Fuji. Next year I will do the trail that runs here. The staff was very helpful, as they are everywhere here. Will most definitely come back when my ways go through Kawaguchiko

We visited on a cloudy day and were aware that we were unlikely to get a view of Mt Fuji however we went up anyway. I’m sure that the view is great on a clear day. Note that the clouds move quite quickly sometimes so...More

It's worth visiting even if there isn't a good view of Mount Fuji. We liked the heart bell and the fact that they take your picture for 1200 Yens.

We visited in August and it was almost unbearable queuing in the heat for the ropeway. However, when at the top it was slightly cooler and worth the trip up for the view

If Fuji is not visible, not worth at all to go up. There is not any platform to see the lake or anything else. On the top you only have a platform to see Fuji (only Fuji, nothing else) and a shop selling overpriced items....More

The panoramic ropeway could do with some modernization. Old buildings, broken concrete stairs, bewildered plants and bushes: not a very attractive sight.

Well it offers a good view but yikes it’s kinda scary! There’s a few things to do up the mountain (photos, a lookout, there’s a hiking trail, a gift shop)

You can buy tickets either at the Kawaguchiko Station or at the Hakone cable car entrance ticket counter or at the lake itself. At Kawaguchiko Station, you can buy all the attractions tickets and if you buy both / bundle... More

You may want to google Shizuoka and check the cloud cover percentage. However the weather is erratic so my suggestion is to check a few days before going.

The Cable Car ride is Approximately 5-10min until the station. You can still hike up if you wanted to but it would take hours to get to the peak.
