  • At discount how to 720 yen. Convenient free parking area on the lakeside. Go to the early morning procession. The view down to the gondola and a short walk to the right Fuji susono, great! High altitude and also different impression of Fuji and looks. And now came down to see the full extent of the Lake watch. One way I can also go down, walking in a gondola.

  • Weekdays 3 pm half-time visited great view on a sunny day. Mt. Fuji view of Mt. Fuji and the Lake is nice, but will spread from the forests here were "dignified". I think the views here are great. Ropeway may seems a little late and in autumn, you can enjoy a very nice view, exactly behind the school trip students standing in line and waited for about 30 minutes. Crammed with erkenbrand. Looking back on 30-minute undo and no people waiting under the ropeway was rattle. May be lined or not is also a slight timing differences. Sister beneath the ropeway was good but was on big brother already was really horrendous should go here if you like weather!

  • 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.
