Starting from Sounzan station, all the way to Togendai, with Mount Fuji in the backdrop, this ride is nothing short of spectacular. The view from the top has a sheet of sparkling water in Lake Ashi and the formidable beauty of the steaming Owakudani, showing you two very different sides on nature staying in complete harmony. The panoramic view of Mount Fuji is just the cherry of this very stunning cake of nature. This 30 minute journey down the mountain will surely be memorable for you.

Hakone Ropeway, Hakone Reviews - Write a Review
Awesome place, ropeway, temple, furniture shop, restaurant. Modern mix traditional japanese traditional culture.
On a windy day, the gas from the hot springs clouds the whole sky, but once the ropeway cable car moves out, it suddenly ooen up to clear sky! Beautiful scenery on a clear day!
The gondola trip up the Hakone Ropeway was the highlight of the Owakudani visit, mainly because of the epic views of Mount Fuji. Worth the 90 minutes wait in line...
The cable ride up was good from sounzan even though I was a little wary at first. The sulfur smell isn't a lot but the views for Fuji are amazing :) however there was a cable car delay and the line was stupidly long, so we came back down the way we came. Use the free pass and you can get a return from Shinjuku if you are around that area :)
I was worried the sulphur smell would be a bit much for me to handle but thankfully there was hardly a day I Went, apart from the occasional whiff of rotten egg smell when the wind blew. I tried the vanilla and egg ice cream as well as a pancake with red bean paste from one of the stalls here which was pretty good. If you're in a rush to explore Hakone, you don't necessarily have to get off here but if you just want to take in the sights, it wont be a complete waste of time either.
