We were very excited to take the ropeway over the mountain and volcano. We took the Tozan railway up the mountain to Gora and then switched to the cable car (easy transfer) to Sounzan to catch the ropeway. When we checked in the morning from our hotel the ropeway was open all the way. When we got to there it... More

Hakone Ropeway is a cable car at Mount Hakone. It show us a thrilling experience through the mountain and a Sulphur Gas is filled the surrounding. Not too high but great experience

The ropeway is an incredible way to see the Hakone area and beyond, including a ride over the volcanic crater. It runs with Japanese efficiency and the stop at the crater give interesting view of the structure of the sulphur vents. Be sure to try the local delicacy, black eggs boiled in the hot springs. Build the ropeway into a... More

Cable car ride with great views. Went during summer and the inside of the cable car was warm and stuffy. Had to leave the place early because didn't know that it stops operations at 4pm.

The ropeway is a great was to see the Owakudani crater. it just reopened on July 26 after being closed due to volcanic activity. Get the pass so you can do the entire circuit with the cruise on Ashi, the railway and tram car + bus. We did this as a day trip from Tokyo.

The Hakone Ropeway is a typical aerial cable car service that links the respective stations located in the towns of Sounzan and Togendai. At the former, the Ropeway connects with the the rather confusingly-named Hakone Tozan cable car (actually, it's more of a funicular), while at the latter it connects with the pirate-themed sightseeing boat. The entire journey between Sounzan... More

The ropeway is great. Unfortunately part of the ropeway was closed due to volcanic activity. The option was to get off the ropeway, and taking a bus to the next destination. Make sure to get a combined ticket for this (combined bus, train and ropeway) travel.

Not a long one but too many useless stops. Area is nice but too expensive. You can use your car to go there, much cheaper. Stay by the lake.

We bought the Hakone free pass from Tokyo , which includes riding on the ropeway. (cable cars). If you "do the circuit " with this pass you will travel on this ropeway, and it is worth it. The cars are very clean and quiet, but can get a little hot with lots of people in them .We had some cloud... More
