The ropeway - Hakone

After stepping off the pirate ship, the station for the ropeway is right there, so there's no way of missing where you're supposed to go next! A very organised cable car system takes you up the side of the mountain so that you can look down over lake Ashi and the surrounding hills..... and then suddenly.....Fuji-san appears in all his majesty!!!!! I have to say, I let out a little scream when I saw him and even though he was covered in cloud, he was stunning. I can only imagine how amazing it must be on a clear day and fully intend to head back again to see him in all his majesty. We could even hear deep booms coming from his area and although it was probably just thunder, I like to think he was saying hello....
