Komagatake Ropeway, Hakone

The Basics

On a clear day, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of Japan's highest mountain, Mount Fuji, as well as the seven Izu Islands, Lake Ashinoko, and the coastline from the ropeway’s upper station. Nearby is the small Mototsumiya shrine, as well as several hiking trails that lead through the forest from the Komagatake summit down to the shores of Lake Ashinoko, the Owakudani valley, and Sounzan Station. From this station, visitors can board the Hakone Ropeway (a different tramway) for another alpine perspective.
