Mt. Takao Cable Car, Hachioji

(3.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Crowded by word of mouth and since he knew I went to attach the 8:30 to the 1/2. I could take in a 15 minute wait. Could not stand up and digested into something like a steep slope in Japan, I was holding the infant.
