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 .

  • The passengers are Aleppo, luckily the shift is dense. Basically all have to stand up to the mountain (seat is not much), the slope is very big, so the way feel cables car very strong, laboriously climb up. There are stops in the middle, but most of the passengers are always in the car.

  • Used the cable car on the way down... It was a steep ride and lasted for about 6 minutes. The chair lift was a lot better on the way up that was a 12 minute ride. Awesome experience and I would recommend taking the lift on the way up and down. Its a nice slow ride to enjoy the views and surrounds and plenty of opportunities to take pictures and videos.
  • Its like a normal train but slanted. The view outside is spectacular. Its a must ride going to the top of mount ooyama. Piece of advice, aim for the front row seat for tje best view.
  • Easyly reachable via train from Shinjuku along Keio line. All various routes to reach top, both for relax and adventurous climb.
  • This is my first review of just a station. I've used this station to climb down the Mt.Takao on Sunday around sunset. It was quite crowded then, we were queueing like an hour. However, there are some food shops and you can see a view from the station. So you might not get bored.
  • The cable car ride is nice but chair lift ride is awesome! Pretty fun haha~ and the scenery is very beautiful and awesome! ≧﹏≦
