Myoken Cable

The Myoken Cable (妙見ケーブル, Myōken Kēburu), officially the Cable Line (鋼索線, Kōsaku-sen), is Japanese funicular line that climbs Mount Myōken (妙見山) in Kawanishi, Hyōgo. It is operated by Nose Electric Railway. It was opened by Myōken Cable Railway (妙見鋼索鉄道, Myōken Kōsaku Tetsudō) in 1925, comprising the Kabu Line and Jōbu Line, both of which were abandoned in 1944. The Kabu Line reopened in 1960 as Myoken Cable, while the Jōbu Line became a chairlift.
