Interesting and fun. Great experience and a novel way to get from point A to point B. It was good to have the break to view the sulphur gasses along the way and have a snack at the restaurant there.

Covered by the cost of the Hakone Freepass, this is a very convenient way of getting to the easterly attractions of hakone such as the Checkpoint, the summer palace, Motohakone and Hakone Shrine. Good views as well.
