What is it? It is a "slope car", manufactured by Kaho Manufacturing in Japan. This particular one is found at Funaoka Castle Park in Shibata, Miyagi Prefecture.
It's an incline monorail (similar to rack rails & funiculars) and typically installed in parks, resorts, golf courses and temples. The cars can hold 2-50 people and are found in one- and two-car configurations. They are slow speed, typically 2-5 km/h but a few can travel at 10 km/h. The cars are geared to travel on up to 45 degree slopes. They are considered elevators rather than railways under Japanese law.
