Kachi Kachi Yama Ropeway

The views of Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi from the top of the Kachi Kachi Yama Ropeway are magnificent!  It’s an easy one hour drive from Yokota (1970Y in tolls each way) to the free parking lot at the base of the ropeway. A 3 minute trip up 600 feet in a 36 passenger gondola car takes you to the observation deck for 360 degree views of Fuji, the lake and the Alps in the distance.  A short ten minute hike leads to the top of Mt. Tenjo and a longer 3 hr trail leads to Mitsutoge-yama.  After enjoying the views, when you get back to the base you probably won’t be able to resist the smell that the comes from the Fujiyama cookie factory.  It’s okay, it’s only 140Y for a Fuji shaped cookie.  Zeke Lyons – January 2018
