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 second ropeway over the mountain. Board a boat to go across a lake, then take a bus back or reverse direction.
