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).

If you enjoy walking as much as I do the answer is yes. I want to warn you taking the ropeway up to the observation deck is good to view Tokyo Bay.. Seeing the giant buddha at the bottom you will walk down a lot of steps... More
