Of West Japan longest cable car funicular. From the station to the mountain station length 1100 m, elevation 440 m, green tie with about 6 minutes. From the window-walled carved mount sarakura varies with the nature and enjoy a stunning panoramic view. At the mountain station also sarakura mountain cable-car shrine.

  • It is a mountain of 622.2 m above sea level located in Yahata higashi-ku. Is a mountain to the mountain cable car and slope car, so feel free to enjoy the mountain. Furthermore, there is the mountain trails are maintained from the foot of the climbers but crowded on holidays. It is a thing that finds sarakura mountain visitor centre information as there are several trails for beginners good table mountain trail. Climbing in the kunimi rock course at personally visited, here the forest of Tun-Huang Mountain. If you're kunimi rock courses are climbing in the bypass road and straight courses and, in a straight line going to main course I chose was good for this course, in woodlands with climbing from the usual, not too hard, in a short period of time. However it is rumored that there is a "Viper", I...? Please make careful with when climbing. Is the route you can see also says kunimi rocks and boulders, so come experience the favor going down the mountain course is long!.. Coming up this course... and become what it takes? But I feel like evening diversion but also a lot of stairs, not sure. (Sorry) was crowded, long distance mountain climbers kunimi rock course much more. I would also try come and enjoyed both courses are good. I think without much equipment such as cable car so walk only one way, then can move with an attractive Center of Mount sarakura. From the Summit of watch is wonderful! at night is beautiful, so may fit on a date. Also at mountaintop shops and seems that Hermes events, so check it out!

  • 可從天神高速巴士中心搭車70分鐘直達皿倉山高速巴士站,步行2分鐘內就到山底纜車站,非常方便。 注意纜車平日營業時間沒辦法看夜景,建議假日晚上前往。 纜車有2段,中途要爬一層樓轉車,2段來回的總票價為1200yen 建議搭纜車的朋友要坐在纜車最下面的位置,這樣才能邊搭邊看市區風景,不然只有軌道的風景。。。
  • I went to see at night. Humid days doesn't look beautiful at night!! ️ dry, sunny day, somewhat windy there of, seems fine.
