Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama

4.3
On the hillside of Japan's third-tallest mountain, Shinhotaka Ropeway lets you observe remarkable natural scenery from a double-decker gondola. Opened in 1970, the ropeway heads up mighty Mount Hotaka to an altitude of 2,156 m (7,073 ft) above sea level. As you reach the chilly observation deck at the top, you can take in a spectacular panoramic view of the Northern Japan Alps. Admire the natural scenery of the season, whether lush green, golden yellow, or blindingly white. Because of the altitude, always bring something warm to wear.

    Is made with Jack Russel and Labrador, so unfortunately I couldn't get on the ropeway up pot-Kōgen station can go car. There is also parking widely usually at 600 Yen 停meremasu. A little as a mountain one CHAN's walk nice place I think we because of rain the day before feet pretty loose, I went in a little developed. I hope the weather is good and would think. Of course one's climbing without the is cannot be but a little exploring, you can enjoy nature. I hope things compared to the town at the foot of the temperature fairly cool, so always wear one to go with. Later, Wang Chan in the news! Have a dog! Morn when we went and Wang Chan is at all had chartered status. It was all you can ride on the wide lawn. I could take a NAP? I was feeling. But I could not ride the aerial tramway, one her children enjoyed the location.

    Excellent views but not much to do there unless you want to bring hiking gear and walk along the track at the top. Signs recommended having serious hiking/trekking gear to do it and all of the Japanes...  more »

Where to stay in Takayama

Look along the banks of the river running north-south through Takayama for arguably the town's best accommodations. Traditional ryokan (guesthouses) with onsite onsen (traditional Japanese spas) occupy scenic positions across this central area, displaying fine carpentry skills of the locals and the distinctive architectural style they developed over the years. West of this area, you'll find a number of basic ryokan, with a decent selection of side-street hostels and standard hotels around the train station.
