Important Notice

The Hakone Ropeway is currently not operating due to a no-entry zone around Owakudani. The no-entry zone was established because of increased seismic activity that could lead to a minor volcanic eruption in the area. A substitute bus operates instead. The rest of Hakone is not affected.

Hakone () is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, less than 100 kilometers from Tokyo. Famous for hot springs, natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji, Hakone is one of the most popular destinations among Japanese and international tourists looking for a break from Tokyo.
