Mount Nesugatayama Observatory, Shimoda

4.3
Take the ropeway high above the bay to gain spectacular views across the Pacific Ocean at Mount Nesugatayama Observatory. From Shimoda station, the cable car whisks you up to the mountain park, and lets you off just a short walk from the observation point. With the view worth the trip alone, the park also has plenty of other things to see, including gardens and a maze. Should you get peckish at the top, relax and grab a bite at the cafe. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the epic vista. Plan your Mount Nesugatayama Observatory visit and explore what else you can see and do in Shimoda using our Shimoda vacation maker tool .

  • Visit the bedding Mountain to take the cable car up and down, the peak is a good place overlooking the field. The reason why is called the Bedding Mountain, is said to be because the mountain looks like the female supine sleeping position and gets the name. The Lower Bay was the lower anchorage of Perry's "Black Ship" fleet, and the lookout for the Perry Fleet was on the hill.

  • Take the ropeway to the mountain. When you come to Shimoda, here is the gratuity. On the trail, too many flowers bloom.

  • During the holidays I went on two married couples. Aerial tramway takes too much time, and can go up to the top. Around Shimoda, Shimoda, a sea and a good vantage point is. Makes me appreciate seasonal flower beds.
