Hakone Loop Ropeway

Most visitors to Hakone (箱根) do what is known as the Hakone Loop or Hakone Round Course. Part of the loop was under construction early in 2007 so we had to take a bus instead of use the ropeway. The sign says that 64 days after we were there both railways would be operable. We still got to use the ropeway (pictures coming here in the future) for another leg of the loop. Now you get the ropeway from two locations in the loop.

As the picture suggests, you can see Mt. Fuji from the ropeways (weather permitting). You also get to take a boat in Lake Ashi with spectacular views. The loop is lots of fun for the variety of transportation modes you are treated to: bus, boat, ropeway, train, cable car, etc.
