  • 因為是冬天去的,搭上纜車後要能耐得住寒冷,眺望富士山真的很感動啊~ 忙著拍照的同時,也可以感受一下河口湖的景緻,買個小紀念品再下山,很值得

  • Nice view of Mount Fuji from up high. They also sell discount tickets that include a round trip cable car and a ticket to get back to Otsuki from Kawaguchiko station for ¥1500 and other types of ticket to get around the area. From Kawaguchiko station it takes about 16 minutes walk and about 5 minutes on the sightseeing bus (¥150) to get here. It was a bit scary inside the cable car as a lot of people were allowed to get in and we weren't sure of the weight limit.
  • There is a cable car ride that provides a good view of Mt Fuji and its surroundings from high, there's also a small shop that sell dessert and drinks for those seeking a rest while enjoying the scene.
  • The ropeway is the only way to go to top of Mt. Kachikachi, and you will see a great Mt. Fuji in front of you when the sky is clear! So definitely don't miss this if weather is good!
  • the access is not easy to find. nice cable car. nothing much to see up there but to watch the my Fuji~
  • Amazing view of Mt Fuji.the first week of April is a great time, nice weather, the time waiting for the Ropeway is worth it.
