Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I arrived around noon in Gora and was looking for things to do. As the options were limited I decided to visit this museum. If I had had more time, I'd probably done something different. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the way the museum is laid out and the artworks positioned in the landscape. If the weather is right and you have a few hours, thus is definitely a good option for the whole family.

    We were lucky with the weather and had reasonably good views of Mt. Fuji after disembarking from the cable car. The ropeway ride itself is mildly exciting, and passes over steaming sulpher vents on the way to the top. If the weather is cloudy, however, I would strongly recommend to skip the cablecar to the top; you won't see anything to warrant the expense.

    Wanted to see mt fuji and chose this lake (1 of 5 fuji lakes)

    Took a 30 min shinkansen ride from Tokyo station and then a 1 hr taxi ride (USD75 one way) from Odawara station

    Then took what looks like a pirate ship for a quick 25 min pitstop on the lake. A round trip is about 1.5 hrs which we didn’t choose. We took business class which has a sheltered cabin plus private deck area

    Wasn’t breathtaking and maybe not worth the cab ride here

    Unfortunately, as our tour was running late, we were only able to see the shrine and the torii gate from the boat. The setting, with huge trees, looks beautiful though.

    A unique ride on a historic rail line. It seems to serve the locals very well. It was a slow smooth ride with an idyllic view of the mountain scenery, shops and houses so close to the rail line. It was a short steep ride to the stop where we had to disembark in order to catch the cable car. Short but sweet ride.

    On approach via the cable car the dead forests are the first thing you notice, the smell of Sulfur. Once again this is a tourist hot spot so lots of people, but it is worth the view. It is stated not to stay longer than 15 minutes due to the Sulfur. Incredible to watch all the tourists eating the black eggs. Saying is that you extend you life by seven years if you consume one of these eggs - but no refund if it doesn't work!

    It was quite chilly and windy at the top; but a very peaceful walk. There were very few people, a quiet corner of Japan we very much enjoyed.

    The view of Mt Fuji san was clear and unobstructed. The trails were well marked with uneven steps. Good shoes needed. There were elderly travellers having a difficult time on the rocky paths. Air was fresh and crisp.

    It’s free with a Hakone pass. It’s quite small. There is a little greenhouse, a craft store, and a tea house. It is nicely laid out. Don’t need to spend more than 20 minutes here, it worth the short uphill walk to just be there and rest for a bit.

    A gentle stroll up the hill on a gravel path through the pampas grass with good views of the surrounding area .
    There’s parking nearby and a Lawson convenience store .
    Worth a quick visit .

    Quite a little complex. A major transport hub in ancient time where travellers would pay a toll to cross. More museum areas than you'd think, with stable and living quarters etc. Quite interesting.

    This is great and perfect place to see a great view of Mt Fuji, with a cloudy atmosphere. You can relax while taking a breath taking view of Mt. Fuji and Laki Ashi into Perfection

    Started from Sengokuhara, where the bus dropped us off. A clearly marked route - look for brown signs. We found the timings were pretty accurate although we came down a bit quicker. We saw great views of mt. Fuji from the summit and along the ridge. Would recommend boots or good shoes since some parts of rocky uneven surfaces. We returned down to Miyagino. Whole trip was 11 km in about 5 hours including stops for photos and lunch.

    Really fun half day. The different pools with coffee and wine and sake were cool. Only one slide. Beautiful view from outside pool. Great for kids and teenagers. The onsen area was very peaceful and beautiful views while soaking in hot tubs.

    The boat trip was pleasant and kids are sure to enjoy the "pirate" design. The views of Mt. Fuji from the boat are not so clear though, so don't expect too much in that regard. The trip passes by the gate of the Hakone shrine. One nice feature is that they sell excellent craft beer onboard for a reasonable price!
