Attraction > Scenic Ride
Depending on the weather of course, Hakone Ropeway offers some great views of the Owakudani fissure, Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi and the surrounding area of Hakone. If the air is clear and there are not too many clouds, incredible views... but, if the air is hazy and or its cloudy... you won't see much. The Hakone Ropeway service operates at approximately one-minute intervals, and the 30-minute journey from Sounzan Station to Togendai Station, which nestles on the shore of Lake Ashi, allows visitors to take in such spectacular views as the crystal-clear blue waters of Lake Ashi, the rising volcanic fumes of Owakudani and the grandeur of Mount Fuji on a fine, sunny day.
