Mt. Kachi Ropeway

河口湖 富士山パノラマロープウェイ

This ropeway can be ridden from the shores of Lake Kawaguchi. Mt. Tenjo is said to be where the Japanese folktale, “Kachi-kachi Yama,” took place, hence the name of the ropeway. The ropeway takes three minutes to reach the top, 1,075 meters above sea level. From there, visitors can get a panoramic view of Lake Kawaguchi and Mt. Fuji and, on clear days, even the Japanese Southern Alps. You can descend via a hiking trail, passing by sights such as Tenjoyama Gokoku-jinja Shrine and a stone monument commemorating famed author Osamu Dazai.
