Very organised. Swift flow of people from the queue to the cable car. All you do is follow the crowd and the guide. Sit near the door to capture fantastic pictures and videos. Best to sit in the direction of the cable car towards Owakudani....More

Our tour went up to the Owakudani Valley by bus and came back down via the ropeway. The latter was definitely a more enjoyable trip. The cable cabins were on the small side, but fortunately there were a large number of them. In my experience...More

Flying over an active volcano is always interesting, the view from the ride is breathtaking. The ride is very smooth and comfortable.

Far from the best gondola lift I have experienced, although I should say we only took it from Sounzan to Owakadani as the other two sections down to Lake Ashi were under maintenance. The point is, you can drive all the way up to Owakadani...More

This ropeway took us to Owakudani, where we ate black eggs. The view probably would've been nicer had we been able to see through all the foggy interior.

A must do. Excellent view of Mount Fuji. We had a car all to ourselves which really helped the experience.

Disappointing to find this mostly closed for maintenance when we arrived. The bus is just not the same.

We bought 2 Hakone Freepasses at 4000yen each (£27ish) from Odawara Station early am (8.30am I think) and were told a part of the Ropeway had been suspended due to maintenance but they had put on substitute buses to take us between stations instead. We...More

I am not sure where your hotel is but there are regular buses travelling along the main routes to access the area so chances are there is bus stop right near your hotel. If you're in one of the villages in Hakone there... More

As I know it is up and running because Hakone Ropeway has the world record for the longest continuous up time.
