Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
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.

  • It is climbing Mt. Usu ropeway. Since the gate is located at the foot of Mt. Showa shinzan goes up while watching the smoke from Kyoko. Along the way, can see Mt. yotei, climbs and not visible. Good looking Lake Toya and USU volcano crater at the top.
