Good experience and great way to see Hakone. Bought this as part of a sightseeing package and worth the price paid.

Fun part of the Round Pass!

The Ropeway goes over the mountain and over the sulphur smelling steam coming up from the volcano! Definitely worth visiting, buying some Black Eggs that are cooked in the steam of the mountain, and if you're lucky catching a view of Mount Fuji!

No matter where you go travelling via cable car, gondolas or ropeway, it is always an adventure. The panorama is superb and it offers an exciting view of the semi dormant volcanic mountain with the potent sulphuric odor permeating the air. It was beautiful to watch the sunset on our descent. Not a cheap trip from Hakone to the top of the mountain but quite a unique and memorable experience

This is a great way to get around Hakone. It is included in the Hakone Freepass so why not? On a clear day, it also offers great views of the mountains.

Breathtaking views
Mar 2020 • Friends
We came to the rope way by boat which was a lovely way to travel on a clear day then up in the cable car. Great views of the lake, Mount Fuji and the golf course which looked immaculate. Walked up to the shrine when we got to the top for great views.

Beautiful Views of Fuji and Surrounding Areas
Jan 2020
We were there on a nice cold cloudy day. We were warm enough inside the gondola and managed to sneak in some partial views of Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi and the fumaroles in Owakudani. There were hardly any people due to the snow and cold and but it was still worth a trip.

beautiful and serene experience!
Feb 2020
the ropeway glides efficiently from sounzan, over the owakudani sulfur pits, down to one end of lake ashi. when we visited, fuji-san was showing off magnificently on the horizon in one direction, while skytree and tokyo were in the distance in the other direction. we even spotted one of the famous local wild boars! be sure to wave at passengers in the other cars as they pass :)

We loved our experience of the Hakone Ropeway as part of our Hakone Pass - amazing to see Mount Fuji and the Japanese countryside, as well as see (and smell!) the volcanic emissions. Well worth the trip!

Mount Fuji view from ropeway
Feb 2020 • Couples
Hakone ropeway was easily accessible and convenient. Did not wait longer than a few minutes between each station. The view from the cable car was impressive.
