Just a short ride up to the top. I went on a really rainy day so it wasn't crowded at all, but of course the view wasn't as good as on a sunny day. Cafe at the top station was quite nice.

A great view of the sea n where Kinosaki Onsen town sits but the shrine n surroundings don’t offer much. If u only hv one night here, not worth the time n money

Great view from up top of Kinosaki town, the surrounding mountains and the nearby coast. A small shrine and coffee house up top, that's about it.

There is not much one can do in this little village. Taking the cable car up this hill was fun and the view was not bad. If you are used to European or American mountain views you will be somewhat disappointed

Very nice views from the top of Kinosaki. If you are the mood to walk, there are different paths on the top. Nice cafe on the top where you can have a nice cup of tea with a bit of pie.

When it's a clear day you can take the ropeway for a great view of Kinosaki and beyond. We picked-up a discount voucher for the ropeway in a local restaurant beforehand which gave us 50 Yen off each. The normal price is 900 Yen return....More

Before even getting on top of the mountain, the Kinosaki Onsen Ropeway will leave you breathless as you climb higher and higher. There is a brief stop where you may get off at to examine a cultural site where the view is stunning enough but...More
