Discover Hakone by Local Transport

Hakone Tozan Train
Japan's only mountain railway, the Hakone Tozan train leaves from Hakone-Yumoto Station, 100 metres above sea level, taking 40 minutes to climb to Gora, which is at an elevation of 500 meters (1,640 foot).  The climb is negotiated through a series of switchbacks, enabling travelers to enjoy an unusual experience.

Hakone Tozan Cable Car
The Hakone Tozan cable car services the area between Gora Station and Sounzan Station (where the Hakone Ropeway begins).  You may wish to visit Gora Park or Hakone Art Museum containing an interesting moss garden as well as a collection of ceramics from Japan and other Asian nations.  Both Gora Park and Hakone Museum can be reached by exiting from the cable car at Koen Kami Station.
Exit on the left hand side of the track when ascending, and the right hand side when descending.  This cable car links Gora Station to Sounzan Station, a distance of 1.2 kilometers (7.4 miles), in ten minutes.  The cable car races effortlessly up the steep slope, and even the station platform at the top is sloping.

Hakone Ropeway
The Hakone Ropeway provides an extraordinary aerial experience as it links Sounzan Station, at an elevation of 700 meters, passes through Owakudani, 1,000 meters (3,280 foot) above sea level, and heads for Lake Ashi.  Each spacious car has a capacity of 18 passengers and large windows for panoramic views of the landscape.

Hakone Sightseeing Cruise
The Hakone sightseeing cruise ships – large, gaudily decorated replicas of pirate ships – are a famous sight on Lake Ashi and a Hakone trademark.  New pirate ships will go into service in the future, making a cruise on Lake Ashi more enjoyable than ever.
