This is a really relaxing mountain !
Breathtaking views and good hike courses.
Ropeway available if you don’t want to climb.

Beaches nearby,so if you are traveling by car everything will be perfect !

You will be able to see a lot of interesting things here , but make sure to come here early since they close quite early too.

For those who have already conquered the typical sights of Tokyo, this is a great option offering both mountain and seaside views. But keep in mind – this is not a relaxing walk through the mountains – Nokogiriyama's paths are comprised mostly of stairs, often uneven ones, and require a reasonable amount of physical fitness. Visiting the large Buddha and Kannon require one to traverse hundreds of stairs – up and down the mountainside – but both sights are more than worth the hike.

There are a limited number of direct trains (Sazanami line) from Shinjuku to Kama Hanaya station, which run on select Saturdays and Sundays. A round-trip ticket is around US$75 including a reserved seat; the ropeway up and down the mountain is an additional US$10 round-trip. Make sure to bring food/drinks with you, as there are few opportunities to purchase anything on the mountain.

I'm been living in Chiba prefecture for many years but I didn't know this place until recently. It has a mysterious landscape and many spectacular sculptures. You can take a cable car which cost 500 yen to the top. From there you need to pay another 600yen to enter the attractions of the mountain.

Everything is good except that many of these sculptures are not properly maintained. It seems that management is runs by elderly people and they are run out of funds.

Also the access back to the cables station is quite hard. You have to hike up the mountain again after visiting the biggest Buddha statue. Other option is go down the mountain which is another long walk to Hota station. The rains run only once or twice in an hour. There's not much shops around the station.

Overall I'm glad I came.

Wow this is a must see if visiting Tokyo, I gave it 5 stars, it's breathtaking and i want to go back with more time and actually try climbing the mountain.

I really recommend avoiding busy times as i went when two tourist buses had just arrived (weekday lunchtime) and had to wait 30 minutes for the cable car and put up with swarms of people chatting and snapping and spoiling what could have been a spiritual thing.

Be warned, theirs a lot of steps so bring water, a change of t-shirt and be prepared to get a sweat on.

Practical info bellow ;

- The cable car costs 500 yen one way, 900 return and finishes at 5.00 pm (not sure what time it opens)

- the temple bit costs 600 yen

- There's shops and a couple of restaurants about to grab food in town + food at the cable car station

- if you brought bags along (as i did; rollercase) that you don't want to take up i managed to store mine by asking at the fishing tackle shop opposite hanakanaya the station (have to collect by 4) . There's also small coin lockers at the cable car station at the summit.

You will get scared at the tip on the mountain, but you can see the great view. You have to visit here. You do not have to visit Mt. Fuji. If you want to see, I can take care of you.

Stopped here on our way down south from Chiba city to Minami Boso. We drove up the mountain so didn't use the Ropeway. I think if you have a car it is probably better to drive up. It will cost 1000 yen to drive and park your car, once you get to the entrance there is also a visitor fee (make sure you ask for an English map as there are a few things to see). Start with the large Buddha that has been carved into the rock - a recent addition but quite spectacular. Above this there is a lookout hanging out of the rock. Walking around the track there are many carvings on the way to the large daibutsu. Allow 2-3 hours to walk (about 3km steep in places), tracks are well marked. Take a camera especially if weather is good as there are some good coastal views.
