Nokogiriyama Ropeway

Other Vehicle
This ropeway connects Sanroku Station of Futtsu City’s Kanaya with Sancho Station on top of Mt. Nokogiri. It is a four-minute ride, with 15-minute waits between cars, and it operates year-round (though it is closed for inspection for a part of January every year.) You can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the area around Mt. Nokogiri from the car. Also, Mt. Nokogiri was selected as one of “Kanto’s Top 100 Fuji Views.” If you make use of the early morning service on New Year’s Day, you can enjoy a great view of the “Red Fuji” sunrise.

    There is no shame using the ropeway either up, down or both, as you will be doing TONS of walking and stairs at the top. The line can look quite long, but in my experience, it moved pretty fast. You...

    It is a nice, scenic, and maybe crowded ride to see the Daibatsu in Nokogiriyama. A short walk from the ferry. A bit pricey, but so is everything else in Japan.
