If you have the time it is a nice cute train ride. Decent views and if not mistaken during certain season you get to see hydrangeas along the ride. Only downside is it is rather slow so it can eat up the time that you have in Hakone. Lots of greenery to enjoy.

This is alternative to buses that runs the one of the side of Ashi lake. This is a hill train so expect uphill ride. This mode of transport can get very popular and crowded at time. Free Pass is a great way to use this train and can tie up with their bus systems. The train runs between Hakone-Yumoto uphill... More

This train is a fun way to go around Hakone. It takes you up the steep mountain slopes, and also offers great views at the same time. The interesting part is the way this train runs. At 3 points, it changes directions, to climb the steep slopes. Do take the Hakone Free Pass, and enjoy this along with other attractions... More

Such a cute train that rattles up the mountain. It stops a few times to change drivers as it changes direction zig zagging up the mountain. Great views of hydrangeas from the train. A fun experience

If you visit Hakone, you want to ride this train, it sneaks along slowly on a scenic route through the mountains, it has to double back a few times because of the tight conditions. It is a great way to view the Hakone area, all rail lovers will enjoy this train.

We were lucky enough to be staying somewhere that meant this was our closest form of transport. Loved it! Though, if you are scared of heights, maybe don't sit in the front carriage. Be sure to get the Hakone Free Pass to use this as much as you can for sight-seeing

What a lovely way to get around. Hydrangeas growing alongside the tracks, lovely views and comfort. Be sure to get the Hakone Free Pass and travel on the Tozan Railway!

We took this train on the way back from the Hakone open air museum. The station is right next to it. We were getting towards the JR line station of Odawara. This is a cute ride . You progress slowly amids tons of hydrangea flowers and it is a nice clean cabin with a lot of windows. But it takes... More
