Close enough to Tokyo for a day trip. The hike is not too difficult and there are some beautiful views and scenery. Great view of Mt. Fuji from the top. The "view from hell" is smaller than i expected and being that it is Japan,...More

Easily reached by car via Tokyo bay aqua line and toll road up the mountain for 1000 jpy per car. Free parking at the top makes this the better choice than the rope way (500 jpy per person one way).
