It’s a fun experience since it’s the steepest one in Japan ! And it takes only a few minutes to go up or down ! There are also tasty restaurants nearby the station.

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.

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.

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.
