Buy cable car tickets first then join queue.

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

We used the rope way to get to the top of the mountain and spent 4 hours walking around to see the amazing views and even more amazing stone Buddha's and of course the largest Buddha in Japan which is very impressive (having visited on a very warm humid August day I can't possibly imagine how this place was created...

Directed here by a local colleague, I took the train to Hama-Kanaya station and took the less-than-10-minute walk to the Ropeway (go straight out of the station until you hit the main road, turn left and follow it until you see the sign pointing to the left). I bought the two-way ticket for 930yen. On boarding, an official photographer offers... More

The ropeway station is located about a 10 minute walk from Hamakanaya Station (head out of the station and go straight until you see the main road by the water, turn left and walk until you see the large ropeway billboard and bear left). The fee is 500 yen for a single trip up (or down) or 930 yen return.... More

This was truly a hidden gem. My wife and I went here to see the Big Buddha and it did not disappointment. We bought the two way ticket since I was lazy and I knew there would be a lot of hiking to be done once we get there. We took the railway there and it was about 90 mins... More

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." "Awesome" I thought! The thing I didn't figure out until I reached close to the... 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.

The walk at the top will easily take up another 1.5 hours .... to enjoy stone-wall cravings, garden.... from the Edo period. Sneaker shoe is recommended. View is best in winter season, apparently ..... on a clear day, can spot Mt Fuji also.
