Hakone Ropeway (Gondola)

Hakone Ropeway

The Hakone Ropeway (箱根ロ-プウエイ) or Gondola as it probably should be called in correct English, is part of the Hakone Round Course, a popular way to visit Hakone. It connects Sounzan Station (at the terminus of the Hakone Tozan Cablecar) with Togendai Station (at the shore of Lake Ashinoko) and stops at Owakudani and Ubako stations on the way. The ropeway is fully covered by the Hakone Free Pass.
