We thought the ropeway was closed so imagine our delight and surprise when we found out that it was operational. We even caught bits of Mt Fuji as we were queuing for the ride and on the ride itself. It's inclusive if you bought the day pass and we found it to be useful and worth it.

Best part of the Hakone Pass experience but sadly due to volcanic gases the nicest section was closed. It has been for close to 6 plus months now. Check the website for latest updates. However still worth a ride. Nice views up top especially on a clear day. Sadly Mt. Fuji is best seen on the section that is closed.... More

Although the ropeway has been altered meaning you can only go 2 stops it was an interesting experience. You are not allowed to leave the Owakaduni station but the views give you a good idea of what the area is like. No views of Fuji today.

We road the ropeway several times to various locations. Unfortunately, the best part of the ropeway that goes over the volcano parts was closed due to unusually high levels of gasses. You only got to go on one part and then they bused you over to the tram. I would not buy a ticket just for this part of the... More

it provides a great view but be mindful that half of the ropeway is closed due to volcanic activities, so you will need to take the bus first before going on the ropeway

Due to volcanic activities in 2015, Owaku-dani Valley is now closed for visitor, this is the closest one can get to see the activity, the Owaku-dani valley is the third stop from Togensai Station, make sure you get the return ticket so you can quickly hop off the ropeway, take pics of the volcanic ash before riding back down.

Loved the views. Loved the fact the cars actually come to a full stop to load and unload passengers. A gorgeous way to get from a to b. Be sure to get the Hakone Free Pass to ride this fantastic mode of transport

Really enjoyed the short trip on the ropeway. Spectacular views out onto the lake and inland to the volcanic ash. Very comfortable and smooth. The Loop tour is extremely well arranged wit the transfer from one mode of transport to the next running like clockwork

The Ropeway offer some absolutely beautiful views. The day we went up we were unable to get off the tram at the top because the volcanoe was spouting too much smoke. It was really cool to see anyway.

It is here we understood we paid the cable car for nothing ... Once at the "top" , we realised the ropeway was only partially open. Only non-connnecting sections of it were open. They charge you full price for the ropeway and then they make you travel by bus to get to the open sections and after the rope ride... More
