Hakone-en Komagatake Ropeway

A top spot for viewing Mt. Fuji

By Sandra Isaka    - 1 min read

For incredible views of Mt. Fuji, take this ropeway to the top of Mt. Komagatake, Hakone's highest mountain. On a clear day, the view includes the Izu Islands, Lake Ashinoko, the coastline of Japan, and a breathtaking Fuji-san. The 'Hakone Free Pass' includes another ropeway that takes you to Owakudani. If you drive or do not purchase the pass, I highly recommend this ropeway. In addition to stunning views, there is a small shrine and great hiking trails. Weather is extremely important. Don't go if you can't see the top of the mountain from the bottom.
