Usuzan Ropeway, Sobetsu-cho
(4.2/5 based on 180+ 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. Arrange your visit to Usuzan Ropeway and discover more family-friendly attractions in Sobetsu-cho using our Sobetsu-cho trip itinerary planner.
