Japan is one of my favorite countries to go to as a transit enthusiast. It has everything and most systems have frequent service. All transit fans need to visit the land of the rising sun!

This tourist area has a great tourist loop. Ride a train from Tokyo, the mountain tramway with switchbacks up the mountain. Then transfer to the funicular to get higher. Transfer to a Ropeway, then a  2nd ropeway over the mountain. Board a boat to go across a lake, then take a bus back, or reverse direction.
