Mount Nesugatayama Observatory, Shimoda

(4.2/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • It is fine, a good vantage point overlooking the far. Near the Summit of "nagomi ball throwing" is quite difficult, but, vanadiel and his wife made a good challenge. Store clerk also was often much nicer.
