This railway has to negotiate a very steep mountain to get to the actual Ropeway (i.e., cable cars) to see Mt Fuji, so it ascends slowly. There are several hairpin turns so it does an interesting switching back and forth in terms of which end...More

This was a comfortable train that was sufficiently air conditioned. The Hakone station was small and a bit frazzled.

If you are exploring Hakone, it seems inevitable that you need to take the Hakone Tozan Railway. It is part of the Hakone Free Pass, which isn't actually free, but easy to use and takes to all the sites you want to see.
