  • We imagine the only remaining species, for which we are understood here. Strolling along the Lake, we could see Mount Fuji-San. But after an hour, when we were on the lookout, clouds all delayed and visibility was virtually no (

  • Opposite signs at 11 am from the car had enough walking one way up two cable car station. The ramp slope style depends on the stairs. If the elderly are recommended to go up the stairs because there will be less tired spot. Price per person round trip cable car 720 Yen but if it wanted to hike to the Observatory for free. Top gardens Photo spot I have the top little activities, and it also has a restaurant, drinks, souvenirs, with bathroom.

  • 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.
