The ropeway is definitely worth a visit! The views at the top are amazing, and there is a cute little shop that sells some snacks. The ropeway only take about 3 minutes to get to the top for those who aren’t too keen on heights....More

It was a clear day when i visited, so the views were amazing! Plenty of place to take good photos up there but i guess this will depend on the weather. Also had the grilled dango which was satisfying to eat in cold days! The...More

Amazing view of Lake Kawaguchi and Mount Fuji from the top of ropeway but I was a bit crowded for a small ropeway, almost no place to breath.

The rope way provides excellent views on the way up of the lake and neighbouring mountains. The ticket price is very reasonable but lockers seemed expensive by comparison. There is a 270deg view at the top with a nice viewing platform on the roof of...More

It was a one woman operator at the start of Ropeway. She basically counted the number of heads , collected tickets and squeezed as many of us in. It was so packed that we feared it might give way! At the top, it was just...More

Cheap (enough, when combined with the 'buy all' ticket, bus/boat/ropeway) and fun, especially for kids and teens, and fairly quick even though the queue is daunting. We travelled with 2 x older teenagers and I was a bit shocked at the lengthy queue. But the...More
