Need direction to get to Green hotel thru ropeway

Hi,

Greatly appreciate for quickest direction to get to Hakone Green hotel thru ropeway from Odawara station. Hotel provided a direction but it seems much longer. I believe reading somewhere the name of the ropeway station to get off and walk to hotel but I cannot find it now.

If it is Hotel Green Plaza Hakone the nearest ropeway station is Obako (姥子) which is less than 5 min walk from the hotel.

Thanks William for your reply!

The map is helpful and I am able to google the direction based on your information. The hotel provided me the ropeway station Yukon, I could not visualize the location based on their information.

I checked out the Google Streetview of Ubako Station. Once you get off the Ropeway godolas, you go downstairs and there is a corridor- one side linking to the more obvious exit (which will go to the main road and would be a diversion), the another side leading to a barely recognizable small door leading to stairs and onto a secret passageway into the premise of the Hakone Green Plaza Hakone to the hotel lobby in 3 min through a small footpath under the trees (there is a small sign in Japanese and English telling it's the direction to the hotel; you may ring the hotel and the staff will be picking you up if with luggage).

If you check inside Ubako Station using Google Streetview, the above sign is placed next to the poster of Odakyu Romance Car in the corridor.

Got it, thank you all, very helpful

Luckily we don't have a lot of luggage, our hotel in Tokyo will store our luggage for us.

Make sure I get this right

From Kyoto to Odaware station with Shinkansen train

Odaware station change to local train to Hakone-Yumoto

Hakone-Yumoto ride cable car by Hakone Tozan Railway to Gora Station

Take ropeway to Ubako station and walk to hotel

If ropeway does not run, then we have to take the bus from Hakone-Yumoto station
