The Kachi Kachi Ropeway takes three minutes to reach the observation deck near the peak of Mount Tenjo. The observation deck is situated at 1075 meters above sea level with 360 degree panoramic view of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. From the observation deck there is a hiking trail available that goes through a forested mountain slope. It takes about 30 minutes to reach the bottom of the Mount Tenjo. There is another trail from the observation deck that goes to the summit of Mount Tenjo where there is a small shrine. At the summit there is another hiking trail to Mount Mitsutoge where there are nice views of Mount Fuji. The Kachi Kachi Ropeway takes its name from Dazai Osamu’s folk story “Kachi Kachi Yama.” The story is about a rabbit getting revenge on a thieving raccoon, which is why there are cartoonish figures of the characters around the observation deck and ropeway cars.
