The attraction is located at bus stop 11 on the tourist bus red route. The ropeway takes you up to an observation deck where there are good views of the lake and Mount Fuji. Queues are fairly long, we waited around 30 minutes around 10.00....More

The cable car trip provides excellent views of lake Kawaguchiko and Mount Fuji. A combined ticket gives access to a boat trip on the lake as well. Get there early - it’s understandably a popular tourist attraction and the cable cars can be quite crowded...More

You’ve obviously come to Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt Fuji. This is probably one of the better ways to do it. Walking distance from the promenade around the lake, look for the cables. The entrance is up a steep slope, then after you get your...More

Our family enjoyed this activity. We bought tickets bundled with the boat ride. It offers one of the best views of Lake Kawaguchiko and Mt Fuji. There is a souvenir shop at the top serving soft ice cream and snacks.

You may want to google Shizuoka and check the cloud cover percentage. However the weather is erratic so my suggestion is to check a few days before going.

The Cable Car ride is Approximately 5-10min until the station. You can still hike up if you wanted to but it would take hours to get to the peak.

Sadly you can only buy it in Kawaguchiko station. I would recommend buying it at the Ropeway to avoid the 1 hr queue
