The Ōyama Cable Car (大山ケーブルカー Ōyama Kēburukā?), officially the Ōyama Cable Line (大山鋼索線 Ōyama Kōsaku-sen?), is a Japanese funicular line in Isehara, Kanagawa. This is the only line Ōyama Kankō Dentetsu (大山観光電鉄?, "Ōyama Sightseeing Electric Railway") operates. The company belongs to Odakyū Group. The line opened in 1931, as a route to Ōyama Afuri Shrine on Mount Ōyama. The line is now also used for hiking.
