Mt. Takao Cable Car, Hachioji

3.7
The steepest cable car in Japan, Mt. Takao Cable Car takes you over tall trees, rewarding you with a view from the top of Mount Takao. This two-way cable car, an alternative to the 2.2 km (1.6 mi) 1.5 hour hike to the top of the mountain, gives you the chance to ride through the natural mountainous environment. At the top, a museum with games and activities, as well as a health food shop, provide an outlet before heading back down the mountain. A hint: purchase round-trip tickets at the bottom to avoid long queues at the top. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Mt. Takao Cable Car by using our Hachioji day trip planning app .

  • From Shinjuku Keio line and express will take you, in a small 1-hour arrives at the mountain. Again there is out of this world. Tokyo is surprisingly green and often is. It is a recommended spot.

  • Sometimes a faster walk if you can shorten this time until the Summit is crowded on weekends

  • Was used at yakuo-in Temple. Can be purchased at the public transportation IC card. Tickets conductor Friedrichstraße cut gate. Cable car passes by way of the half, Aoba and the autumn issue. Highlight is the most steep on the cable car. 31 degrees, 18 minutes. Worth the experience.
