Beautiful view from there, the walk until there was also very pleasant and there's a parking lot nearby.

Easily reached by car via Tokyo bay aqua line and toll road up the mountain for 1000 jpy per car. Free parking at the top makes this the better choice than the rope way (500 jpy per person one way).
