Hakone Komagatake Ropeway
Wide panorama from summit station (1,327 m above sea level) feels as if you are looking out from the sky.

From the Hakone-en on the shore of Hakone Lake Ashinoko to the Hakone Mt. Komagatake Summit, the ropeway covers the full distance of 1,783 meters one-way in 7 minutes.

On the summit, visitors will find an observatory and a spacious plaza, with a great panorama centered on Lake Ashinoko below, stretching out over the full Hakone area like a miniature garden, with majestic Mt. Fuji in the northwest, and in the distance from Suruga Bay to Izu Shichito Island, Shonan Beach , Miura Peninsula, and Boso Peninsula.

Going higher still from the station at the summit, there is the Hakone Mototsumiya-jinja Shrine on the summit of Mt. Komagatake 1,356 meters above sea level.

Message from the Facility
The location is enjoyable through the year, with miniature cherry blossoms in spring, sanshou roses, meadowsweet, and bellflower blooming in summer, amid summer temperatures at a refreshing 20 degrees Celsius, while in the fall aconite and the red leaves of autumn can be admired, and in winter, with a bit of luck, visitors may encounter silver frost and unkai cloud formations. The Mototsumiya-jinja Shrine on the summit, the rear shrine of the Hakone-jinja Shrine, is open for worship on January 1, 13, 15 and 24, as well as on weekends and on national holidays.
