Steepest cable car in Japan. Operates every 15 minutes and return journey tickets can be bought. Good service.

Without riding this cable car, I wouldn’t have been able to hike up one of the the steepest portions of Mount Takao’s Trail 1. I’m not a regular hiker, so even the rest of the trail was enough for me, especially in 90 degree F and 90% humidity weather.

Unless one hikes up the mountain else ropeway will be the most accessible way. Here we gotten the discounted tickets at Shinjuku sta which includes to-fro train and ropeway journey. We took the Keio Line to Takao Sanguchiko station and the cableway Takao Tozan Cable (高尾登山ケーブル Takao Tozan Kēburu) line is just mins from it. The cable car runs from the lower sta of Kiyotaki Station (清滝 201 m elevation) to higher elevation of Takaosan Station, climbing 271 meters over a journey of a little below 7 mins. We are quite lucky to get the front panel position (head-on view ) so were able to share some pic we took (attached) The climb was slow & steady until the last part, a very steep climb! Can really feel the pressure exerted on our body… Apparently this is the steepest cable car in Japan— they even have souvenirs & t-shirts printing on this! Definitely provides a great option compared to active hiking up the various trails. Like all ropeway do note that the cable car closes before 6pm on weekdays and may stop operations under adverse weather.. The trip definitely adds another memorable and fun ropeway alongside our experience at Mt Kinka (Gifu castle), Iwakuni, Mt Inasa, Mt Rokko and others 

the train was quite steep, seating was basic facing other people and it was quite small sometimes your knees bumped to others people seating opposite you. during peek it's quite full and people are standing and way too crowded. better to take the chair lift but this is the latest transport to go down, the best way when it's going dark than walking in the jungle.

We had a great time using the cable car. Saved our legs for the up hill journey to the top of Mt Takao. From memory it was 680 yen 💴 each way for us as we were time poor well worth it. A little unique experience away from the hustle & bustle of city sight seeing. So go for it if you can. Until next time. Enjoy the view.
