Enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view from volcanic Mount Omuro using Omuro Mountain Lift, a two-seater chair lift taking you on the top of the old grass-covered crater, into which you can shoot arrows from a bow for fun. The ride offers scenic views of valleys and nearby hills, while a 1 km (0.6 mi) long circular path around the crater on the top offers views of Gulf of Sagami, Jogasakikaigan Bay, Izu Highland, and Mount Fuji. The walk around the crater is easy for all ages and takes about 20 minutes, with spectacular scenery to observe from 580 m (1,902 ft) altitude. From Ito station or Izu-Kogen station, take Tokai bus to Shaboten Koen (Cactus Park).

  • This place has been my favorite for a while in the Izu area. First, shape of the mountain is good. Though it is not big, perfectly bulges from the ground. Second, you can walk around the rim in...  more »
  • Beautiful views, I can see why it is protected. Very accomodating staffs as well, who would slow down or stop the lifts completely for the disabled (had some elderly in wheechair). I took that time...  more »
  • The chair lift does what it’s supposed to do, make it easy to get to the top. Not difficult at the start and not difficult at the end ( in either direction). Never more than a few feet of the ground.....  more »

  • The place opens at 9 am. We visited it in early April. The mountain hasn't turned fully green yet. It was very windy at the top of the mountain. But truly impressive. On the top there are some snack bars serving both snacks and drinks. Public toilet available as well.
  • Thrill, excitement, Beautiful and cheap. Perfect holiday site. Go early (around 9-10 Am) to avoid long queue.
  • It's really fun and exciting moment when you ride alone. 😂 Don't worry it won't drop rapidly or swing as much. Hope you will be fun there.
  • Awesome views! Quick ride to the top and only 25 minutes to walk around the rim. Definately able to do this in an hour, plus the Shaboten Zoo is right across the street. Literally able to walk over...less than a minute. Do both in one day!
  • It's the only way up Mt. Omuro and it's an enjoyable ride that has a great view of Ito and the surrounding sea! It also has quite a unique look being the only thing that goes up this grassy extinct volcano.
