We lined up about 20 minutes before it opened at 9am on a Sunday morning, and it was wonderful. The car on the way up only had about 10 of us, and the top was empty when we got there.
By the time we left at 9:40ish to ride down, it was packed, the cars were shoulder to shoulder, and the line for the ride up was winding and long.
Totally worth the early arrival!
Fujisan was kind to us, and looked stunning. Perhaps my favorite activity on this entire trip!

A fantastic view to oversee the entire lake as well as Fuji Mountain. But sometimes the cloud may have blocked the view of the Mount Fuji especially during noon time and afternoon.

However, the area is a little bit too crowded especially when boarding the cable car. There is a shop where there are lots of souvenirs and Japanese snacks related to Mount Fuji. There is also a cafe where they sell snacks particularly the Mount Fuji Ice-pop and the Japanese grilled mochi with black sugar.

Overall, it is an ideal place to visit but make sure you are at the right time of the day to view the Mount Fuji. Suggested early the morning or right before sunset.

We were lucky enough to have a great day to go to the top of the Tenjo Mountain. However, the amount of people crammed into the ropeway was a bit frightening. Once on top we were rewarded with great views of both Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi on the opposite side. Unless it's a clear day, it probably would not be worth going up. The ride up is 3 min. and there is a tearoom and washroom facilities at the station.

Quick and fun ride up and the views from the platform are excellent. You can do a nice hike up there too. Enjoyable thing to do when in kawaguchiko.

The Ropeway was an awesome way to see Mt Fuji and Lake Kawaguchiko from up high. The Ropeway takes 3 minutes and is a smooth ride up. The view from the top is gorgeous (as long as you can see Fuji for the most part) and great photo opportunities. One tip is to head up early- they open at 9am to beat the crowds and save yourself waiting in what we witnessed to be a huge line out the building! Well worth the 800¥ return ticket!
