Mt. Senkoji is only 140 meters high, but it does go right down to the sea and is fairly steep, so the ropeway is a good way to get up.
I havent been on to many ropeways that are so urban. On the way up it passes directly over a lot of houses and of course offers nice views.
Its not often you get to look down on a cemetery.
Closer to the top it passes near Senko-ji, the temple the mountain is named after.
From the top there are great views over Onomichi and across the channel to the islands...
