Pleasant ride

The entrance of the cable car was easily accessible from Kintetsu Railway Station. This cable car is one of the oldest in Japan. I like the classic version more than the iconic cartoon ones.

Just randomly decided to take it up and see where it would lead me. Was pretty cool with decent views on the way up

It's cool taking a cable car

How interesting to be so far up the hill that you have to take a cable car. It took me a little while to figure out the schedule.

Delightful Cable Car!
Oct 2016 • Family
This is the Cable to Ikoma Mountain Amusement Park and Hozanji Temple. The Cars are styled after a Dog and a Cat. If you ask the conductor to make the sounds as they cross they will talk to each other. For those of you who are not fluent in Japanese cat and dog language the cat says nyao nyao and the dog says won won. Be sure to try to sit in the front seats for the best view and have your camera ready. This is one of the oldest cable cars in Japan.

Journey into history

On your way to the historic Hozanji Temple, take a journey on the oldest cable car in Japan. These little carriages are decorated like cat and dog cartoon characters and are fun to travel on and fun to see. Not so expensive and they rattle and sway along the straight, up and down tracks. At the ticket machine you can buy a return journey and the machine pops out 2 identical tickets, one for going up and one for the return journey. You can buy tickets at the top for the return journey, if you forget to buy a return.There are ticket collectors at the bottom station, but on the occasion we visited, there was no-one at the top. The carriages have a driver and are also controlled by a master at the top station. You can take the cable car to the top and walk down the hill, but it seems like a really long way for little gain. Worth a relaxing journey to a good view of Ikoma town and neigbouring region from the top of the hill.

Cute cable car

With this cute little cable car you get up the mountain slowly and safely and can enjoy the view both upwards and downwards. The locals take this train to their homes, since it's a steep and long walk with your groceries otherwise.

This train ride is never not hilarious. Takes you to an amusement park on top of the mountain, but I get a kick out of the fact that this is also the commuter train for those who live in the area.
