Mt. Takao Cable Car, Hachioji
(3.8/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Kiyotaki station by cable car, reach the Takao mountain station in 6 minutes or so. When lots of people have that. Middle of a cable car tunnel 2. Also, think is beautiful, all 色付itara are a lot of maple trees on the steep lines.

  • 當天是坐Cable Car上山, 資料上說明這是日本最斜登山纜車(斜度31度18分), 感覺真的很斜呀! 當天雖有微雨, 但坐這種纜車, 一點也不受影響, 可以很舒服地慢慢欣賞風景!
