Takaotozan Cable Car - fast & best for elderly and children and it only takes about 15 minutes. For young children and elderly this is best means to climb Mt. Takao. The lift is more fitting for a couple and elder children.

This mountain is a must visit if you are at Hashimoto. The walk is a breeze once you have alighted from the cable car. Do check the timings of the cable car and chair lift. If you ate lucky, you should be able to get...More

Quite an interesting and enjoyable ride up the mountain, decent cost and fantastic views. Not sure I'd call it a cable car as it runs on a rail track and cog gear driven.

Only a few minutes ride. Not able to enjoy the scenery and take photos. As I don't have a seat, I need to hold tight while the cable car is moving at an angle. In addition the car is too crowded but very safe.

After I took the chairlift up I decided to take the cable car down. Same problem when coming up: long line for the cable car and almost non for the chairlift. Nonetheless I took the cable car just to compare and must confess that the...More

The cabin is small and was very congested. As there are only two cars, one going up and the other going down, the wait to get on board can take several minutes.

The cable car saved me time so I could hike to the top of Takaosan with the limited time I had to visit. The scenery is beautiful and the ride is quick.

The funicular railway was opened in 1921. Distance is 1.0 km; vertical interval is 271 m. You can enjoy a panoramic scenery spreading from the base.

I recommend taking the cable car instead of the chairlift if you are afraid of heights. Chairlift would take about 10-15 minutes, but you get to enjoy the scenery along the way. Cable car will take about 5 minutes max.
