My suggestion is take the ropeway one way. Either up, or down. The ropeway is great but to see everything (like the buddha and temple) you must hike down. And if you are stubborn like me and bought a round trip ticket without knowing, you...More

I'm confused why TripAdvisor has this listed as just a ropeway, since at the top of the mountain there's a gorgeous Buddhist shrine with so much to explore. I went here in the peak of the summer, but despite the uncomfortable amount of sweating I...More

First thing. If it's busy buy the rope way tickets before joining the queue for the cable car. Nicest way to get here is on the ferry. Nice trip

The rope-way was a nice, quick, inexpensive ride to the top with stunning views. When purchasing my ticket the woman asked if I'd like one-way or round trip. I told her I'd like to ride up and walk down, to which she replied "190 minutes."...More

A nice day trip from Tokyo/Yokohama (via ferry). Can get crowded on weekends but not too badly so. 2 great Buddhas and nice grounds and the 'ropeway' is fun. Highly recommended. A bit of a hidden gem.
