Time passes about one year from area around Owakudani volcano alert since May 6th in 2015.
We would like to express our gratitude for your kindness and cooperation.
Last November, the volcanic alert was lowered to Level 1 (heeding active volcano). We have been doing our best to open Owakudani Park by carefully checking the activity of the volcano for visitors.
Today, part of the Hakone Ropeway will restart their operation, line through Tougendai and Owakudani Station. Still, you cannot get off at Owakudani Station, but you can see the beautiful sight of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi from the gondola. We will continue monitoring the volcano and do our best to open the whole area.
The season of fresh green will come. It is the best to see azaleas. We hope that all the visitors have a great time in Hakone.
It’s now or never to experience a wonderful time in Hakone.
