Hakone Ropeway, Hakone-machi

3.9
Enjoy a view of Mt. Fuji and the surrounding countryside by riding Hakone Ropeway, a sightseeing gondola linking Sounzan with Togendai. Zip along the 4 km (2.5 mi) route to marvel at the volcanic hills rising beneath you. At the terminus, admire the blue waters of nearby Lake Ashi, and see if you can spot occasional fumes rising from the neighboring Owakudani volcanic valley. Be sure to check the website for the ropeway's status, as some stations may temporarily close due to volcanic activity.
