Close enough to Tokyo for a day trip. The hike is not too difficult and there are some beautiful views and scenery. Great view of Mt. Fuji from the top. The "view from hell" is smaller than i expected and being that it is Japan,...More
All the hype by local travel websites prompted this long trip from Ueno to 鋸山, making several transfers and change of platforms after 2 1/2 hours and 2150 yen. You then took a cable car (another 500 yen), and then trekked another 600 steep steps...More

If you enjoy walking as much as I do the answer is yes. I want to warn you taking the ropeway up to the observation deck is good to view Tokyo Bay.. Seeing the giant buddha at the bottom you will walk down a lot of steps. This is not for the faint at heart after you visit take pictures remember you have to walk back up to the observation that a lot of steps to take the rope car back down. There is a parking area close to the big buddha easy to walk to. The downside of this to get to the observation deck you have to climb up a lot of steps and walk back down to your car. Or you can drive to the rope car talk the ride up. There are vending machines in front to the side of the big buddha where you can buy water. It would be a good ideal to wear some comfortable shoes and cloths. One important thing enjoy yourself take lots of pictures. :-)

1) From Greater Tokyo, take a train (e.g. from Shinagawa sta.) - either JR Yokosuka Line to Kurihama sta., or Keikyu Main Line to Keikyu Kurihama sta.; therfrom, proceed either by bus (5-8 min) or on foot (approx.20-30 min) to Tokyowan Ferry Kurihama Terminal, and take a ferry to Kanaya port. Then, walk or take air-lift to the top of Nokogiri mountain, and follow the signs (or use a booklet from ticket-box)/
2) Or, take a car via the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line tunnel to Umi-Hotaru artificial island (make a brief stop), and then by Tateyama Expterssway (toll road) and Route 127 to Hama-Kanaya village (then as above by aerial lift), or Hota village (and by car to the temple).
