Mt. Takao Cable Car, Hachioji

#4 of 40 in Things to do in Hachioji
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. Put Mt. Takao Cable Car and other Hachioji attractions into our Hachioji trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

    The cable takes you to the mountain with marvelous view along the road. You will have to pay a fee to use the cable. It is wonderful to enjoy the forest and the view on the way up and down.  more »
