Going up Mt. Takao, best to take chairlift. Biggest challenge is not the ride, but the staircase climb to the chairlift station. Ride is safe, secured, fun and affords u panoramic view versus crowded train. Halfway up, Smile at the photographer and purchase photo once up there. Not expensive.

Great way to go up and down the mountain. Takes about 15 minutes. Buy ticket before you join the line. There are photographers on the way up and down that can take your digital photo for pick up at a cost when you return. Warning: weekends are VERY busy and wait times can be in excess of 1 hour. Also pay attention to operating hours...last ride is around 4.30 pm. Miss it and you are walking down! If possible go during the week.

The trip up was by cable car and you didn't get the full perspective of the slope. Coming back down by chair lift however, afforded great views and you felt much closer to nature. Do a round trip, up one way and back the other.

Fun way to descend Mt Takao. Cheap and much easier on the knees, plus you get stunning views. Just don't fall out 😂

The lines for the cable car were too long so we took the chair lift both ways. The view coming down was awesome. Getting on and off is easy and lots of help is provided. Much better than walking.

I really enjoyed the trip up and down on the chairlift. To my mind, it beats the cablecar hands down and there was no line for the chairlift whereas the cable car line was huge. There is no safety gate on the chairlift and some could find this a little off-putting. The scenery is stunning and the lift travels over some very steep sections which afford great views. Adults 480yen one-way children half-price.

It was a real cool day to be hiking up Mt Takao. We used the 6th trail up. It was quite an interesting hike but it was overcrowded as it was a public holiday. Right on top we felt like we were at Shibuya or Shinjuku. All the people flooded everywhere. Would have been better if it was a week day. We took the chair lift down as we did not want to hurt our knees. Weather was great, as we could still see the view well.

The scenery is stunning on the way down so take the cable car up and the chairlift on the way down. There's no harness but there is some netting at the high areas. I'd highly recommend going here in September!

I took the chairlift down, which was fun after a tired hike up to TakaoSan. But I suggest those whom wish to have a more fun time to take up, and then walk down to enjoy the mountain!

I decided to take the chairlift up simply because there was a huge waiting line for the cable car but non for the chairlift. The chairlift takes longer to arrive at its destination but the views on the way up are very impressive. I was there in the second part of November so the Indian Summer was at a peak. Unforgettable views. Just a bit cold out there in the open at the end of November.
