Good view of the area. This is a popular attraction, so plan accordingly. We visited around 1pm and had to wait approx. 45 to get to the top.

We went up the ropeway on a clear day. Really beautiful view of the lake, Mt Fuji and the town of Kawaguchi.

One of the most perfect views of the Fuji-san on a clear day. You can go up by ropeway or you can walk. Our group decided to go down by foot and we got another great view of Fuji-san completely clear of other tourists. A bit hard to climb down on foot but worth it

The upper station observatory offer nice views to lake Kawaguchi and Mt. Fuji. The duration between the stations is around 5-10 minutes. In rest nothing special.

Very nice experience in the cable car. First time I've experience standing only cable car and the 360 degrees view was fantastic. We've also tried dango which was sold in the store up the top of the mountain.

The ropeway was the most stable ropeway i've ever take. maybe this was because i just visit bana hills in danang, vietnam. the wind at danang can make the cable car swing(but the bana hills cable car was also extremely beautiful and a nice experience !). but there was no problems here. The ropeway was stable and quick! The only... More

We took long train rides from Tokyo and quickly walked to this KachiKachi cablecar 30 minutes before closing. The ride was only 3 minutes. It was a crisp clear day. Mt fuji was perfect. The view was spectacular. Worth the visit. Glad we came. You will too.
