Great views from tram and nice circuit hike at top. Quick trip and nice walk. Don't need more than an hour or two depending on the line.

The ropeway isn't the most ideal as everybody is cramped into the ropeway like sardines but the views from the top of the mountain are unbelievable. To get the perfect view of Mount Fuji you'll have to walk round behind the station to the other...More

I don't know if there are two. I suspect this is the only one. It is perfect for a great view of Fuji, assuming that there is no cloud cover. We were on a tour. The gift shop at the Hakone ferry origin is a good shop... More
