The Ropeway is a Gondola which takes you up the hills. The scenery is awesome. You get a great view of Lake Ashi (behind you), as well as volcanic fissures which look like smoke is coming out of the earth. The views are awesome, and...More

Great views from tram and nice circuit hike at top. Quick trip and nice walk. Don't need more than an hour or two depending on the line.

This was a day well spent in the outdoors away from the skyscrapers of Tokyo. We went by coach. The place was scenic with lots of greenery. Parking is huge and one has to walk for 5-10 minutes to reach the entry point, get the...More

To great good views of Mount Fuji on a clear day this is a must. The views from Owakudani are superb, including the hot water/sulphur springs. Make sure that you have an egg.

The ropeway isn't the most ideal as everybody is cramped into the ropeway like sardines but the views from the top of the mountain are unbelievable. To get the perfect view of Mount Fuji you'll have to walk round behind the station to the other...More

The bus from Hakone-Yumoto is about 15 minutes. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours(max) for the ropeway and 15 min for return. If using public transit add a bit for wait times. Well worth it if the weather is good!
