Relatively inexpensive - but modest facilities that offer you a great view so be sure. If you can avoid doing the cable car when a tourist bus arrives 🤣

In Fujikawaguchiko there is a very nice ropeway that you can see Fujisan in a panaromic point. From the hill it is also possible to watch the landscape of the lake Kawaguchiko.

Can take a cable car ride for this observatory view. Wait time approximately 60 minutes. There is gift shop and snack shop up the observatory. Better be an early bird to see Mt Fuji in its full glory as later in the day, the clouds...More

The view from here is amazing! As others have said it can be crowded and feels like a tourist trap where you first get off the cable car. We walked for about 20min up the mountain and it was beautiful and there was hardly anyone...More

You may want to google Shizuoka and check the cloud cover percentage. However the weather is erratic so my suggestion is to check a few days before going.

The Cable Car ride is Approximately 5-10min until the station. You can still hike up if you wanted to but it would take hours to get to the peak.

Sadly you can only buy it in Kawaguchiko station. I would recommend buying it at the Ropeway to avoid the 1 hr queue
