From the Kurihama Ferry Terminal in Kanagawa, take a relaxing 40-minute cruise on the Tokyo Wan Ferry to Port Kanaya in Chiba. From Kanaya, proceed to Nokogiriyama Ropeway Station, approximately 10-minutes by foot. Upon arrival, purchase roundtrip tickets for 930 yen to catch the cable car departing every 5 minutes. At 329 meters high, Mt Nokogiryama or “Sawtooth Mountain” acquired its distinctive profile from its history as a stone quarry during the Edo Period. Today it offers magnificent views & picturesque spots such as the Hundred Shaku Kannon, the largest pre-modern Buddha, and the 1,500 stone figures of Tokai Arhats.
