Beautiful view from there, the walk until there was also very pleasant and there's a parking lot nearby.

Easily reached by car via Tokyo bay aqua line and toll road up the mountain for 1000 jpy per car. Free parking at the top makes this the better choice than the rope way (500 jpy per person one way).

It is a 2.5 hour trip from downtown Tokyo via Chiba Station. I'd recommend spending 4 hours at Nokogiri including a break for lunch - pack your own or pick one up at a convenience store on the way as there aren't any food places...More

Lots and lots of stairs!! If you cannot walk don't go. Beautiful views, amazing experience. You can have access by train and ferry. Snacks and drinks available but not all over.
