There are many cable railways in Japan to climb up mountains, because the topography of this country has many ups and downs. For example, the mountains in Kanto area have cable railways, such as Mount Takao, Hakone, Mount Tsukuba.
In these mountains which are not far from the city, natures are beautiful, and we can refresh from the busy life in city. They have also cultures for many years. Temples as well as shrines on the steep mountains which has been worshipped since the old era are also worth visiting. Today, thanks to cable railways, people including elderly and kids can travel to them.
This is a Tofu and mushroom cuisine in Oyama, Kanagawa. Oyama for example has a long tradition that many people traveled from the capital to here before the opening of railways and we can experience the culture by such foods.
