Komagatake Ropeway

See the so-called Nagano Alps from Japan's highest aerial tramway, the Komogatake Ropeway. The Ropeway opened in 1963 and is a popular way to take in one of the most stunning, scenic views in Japan. The Ropeway runs from the edge of Lake Ashi to the summit of Mount Komagatake, its namesake. The ropeway carries passengers 950 meters (3,116 feet), making it the highest vertical aerial tramway in the country.  The ride soars through the clouds to provide views of Japan's highest mountain - Mt. Fuji, as well as the seven Izu Islands, Lake Ashinoko, and expansive coastline.

At Mt. Komogatake's summit, passengers off-load to a woodland area with a small shrine and numerous hiking trails to explore. Since the panoramic views are the highlight, it's recommended to only ride the Ropeway on clear days when the mountain summits can be spotted from the ground.

Practical Info

Access the Komagatake Ropeway from Hakone Park, part of the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park, about 90 minutes by rail from Tokyo. The single car aerial tram holds 101 people, and the 2.3 kilometer ride (1.4 miles) takes 7 minutes and 30 seconds. There are 10-20 minutes between cars. The trip costs ¥2,200 roundtrip (about $25USD). The Ropeway operates from 9:00am - 5:00pm every day but closes during inclement weather. Take the ride on weekdays to avoid crowds.
