  • Mt. Akagi, sunlight, or even also overlooks the many mountains of the Joetsu. Also comes down 1 Km, one-way ride ikaho shrine, so that such usage might want. Peak in seasonal ice rink, this is how I think.

  • Arrive in about four minutes. Anyone ever tried walking down the climbs a little like it. Writing was about 30 minutes. See the wonderful staff.

  • By ropeway to climb toward Observatory and Observatory mini soon. Can be seen with autumn colors from here and the town is very beautiful. Also, going back to another lookout. This vantage point and kanetsu came running and see its destination faraway mountains and refreshing. On the other hand, was walking and heading at the top of the road in the autumn feeling better recommend, is the view from the Summit is disappointing. Only dilapidated wooden tables and chairs, is not good. I think it's just good to relax, enjoy lunch out cloth square with a children's playground.
