The view from here is amazing! As others have said it can be crowded and feels like a tourist trap where you first get off the cable car. We walked for about 20min up the mountain and it was beautiful and there was hardly anyone...More

You get a beautiful view of the lake Kawaguchiko and MT fuji from this high point. It does get a bit busy, and they will fill the cable car to the brim.

So when we rocked up on the 17th, the entrance was still full of builder’s vans and scaffolding. Same closed sign. Disappointed as it was a magic day weather wise and our last morning by the lake before heading north to the Suwa Lake area.

We love the view from the top and there are food available for purchase. However, the ride up and down was a little too crowded as they will pack the cabin full with people.

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
