Mount Nesugatayama Observatory, Shimoda
(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Mount Nesugatayama Observatory represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Shimoda trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Mountain gondola takes about 5 minutes the Summit maintained walks and walks a moderate's mature. Was so scenery was outstanding Saturday noon, crowds without the breakfast.

  • Proximity to train station and is only approximately ¥ 1,000 round trip on the cable car to Comodo. Several lookouts and enjoy good prospects. And raining day, however, so it's just a waste of time. Like the airport and what is luck by throwing stones, through the circle.

  • Ropeway/cable cable car ride to the top. No long lines in Oct. At top, great views of the harbor and town. Easy walking paths for strolling to view pretty garden and shrine.
