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 kiyotaki station at the foot of Mt. Takao ride time was 6 minutes. About 40 minutes walk altitude difference approx. 300 meters away, but is useful for the elderly moving way in the sixth. Also, during busy times of 7 minutes intervals and where the 1 annual passenger capacity 130 so 1 hour one way about 1000 people can move around. As they make a pilgrimage to Mount Takao transportation is very convenient.
