Usuzan Ropeway, Sobetsu-cho

4.2
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Sobetsu-cho
Ride along Usuzan Ropeway, taking in far-reaching views from the surrounding countryside to the smoldering peaks of Mt. Usu. Once at the top, you can observe steaming vents and the Pacific beyond at the crater basin observation deck, less than ten minutes on foot from the gondola station. Feast your eyes on the huge crater (formed in 1977 during the third of four eruptions that century), as it bellows great plumes of steam.

    For the first time climbed to aerobic usuzan ropeway. Showa shinzan can see from there. Also different from the view from under the felt. Upon arrival, stairs, climb further. Feel tough and has a wooden stick, your walk through it. Finally got to the USU volcano, see Mt. komagatake eruption Bay beyond. Which is still on the trail, but it seems not in the light.

    You can then ride the aerial tramway, aerial views of Showa-shinzan and Lake Toya and USU volcano. I felt cheap ropeway tourism, travel time is too long, leisurely round trip costs 1500 yen. However, the parking charge 500 yen is levied separately?.
