Went yesterday (August 21, 2018) and it was really cloudy so when we went to the top we barely saw through the clouds which wasn't bad but it was the same view all around. The ropeway for 2 round trip costs 1860 yen. We took...More

My suggestion is take the ropeway one way. Either up, or down. The ropeway is great but to see everything (like the buddha and temple) you must hike down. And if you are stubborn like me and bought a round trip ticket without knowing, you...More

The rope-way was a nice, quick, inexpensive ride to the top with stunning views. When purchasing my ticket the woman asked if I'd like one-way or round trip. I told her I'd like to ride up and walk down, to which she replied "190 minutes."...More
