Good way to get from Lake Ashi up the side of the volcano to Gora. On the way you can visit the Geopark with its volcanic steam outlets.

Amazing view of the steam coming out from the volcano. There may be very long queue sometimes, please leave time for that.

Wonderful views of the forest but the cable car can get stuffy as there is no air conditioning. There is a small roof window which can be opened.

Rainy day made the trip up a little uneventful. Halfway up was great but then fog set in. I would wait for a clear day. But then I imagine it is great views of lake and Fuji

This rioting is OK and you can buy a day ticket for both the rope way and cruise. It's cheaper than buying separately. Parking is available at Sounzan Station but I don't think it's free. However, parking won't be expensive.
