The Maya Cablecar, officially the Maya Cable Line (摩耶ケーブル線?, Maya Kēburu-sen) is a Japanese funicular line in Kobe, Hyōgo, operated by the public company Kōbe City Urban Development. The line opened in 1925, originally as a route to Tōri Tenjō-ji temple on Mount Maya. Now the line is used to see the scenic view of Kobe. Together with Maya Ropeway, the line has an official nickname Maya View Line Yume-Sanpo (まやビューライン夢散歩?, Maya Byū Rain Yume-Sanpo, "Maya View Line Dreamy Stroll").
