Hakone Ropeway Maintenance Planned in 2017

MtFuji_Owakudani_Hakone_200812We would like to inform our partners of a planned closure for scheduled maintenance on the Hakone Ropeway between Sounzan and Owakudani (a distance of 1.5km). The period it’s due to close is 1 January – 14 April 2017. Alternative services will be available during this time as outlined below.

A shuttle bus will operate between Sounzan Station and Owakudani Station. Customers must alight the cable car at Sounzan, then take a shuttle bus to Owakudani station. This shuttle bus is generally timed to match arrival times of the cable car into Sounzan station, so there is minimal time to wait. The operating times are 9 am until 4 pm and the bus can be ridden using a Hakone Pass.

Destination Asia Japan programs will only alter where one of the ropeway sections will be navigated by a bus rather than ropeway. The Owakudani – Tougendai section of the ropeway will continue to operate as normal.
