Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Shinhotaka Ropeway and other Takayama attractions using our handy Takayama itinerary builder.

  • So I went to the March by the great snow plant. Climbing the steep slopes of the first aerial tramway, to experience a second floor built gondola No. 2 ropeway, on the roof. See the towering Snowcap mountains, I was impressed. When I went to Oku-Hida visit!

  • Facility remains clean and the staff was hopper. The weather's good. For a while we forgot to scenic snow mountain and blue sky it sucked, but it can't buy with money. I would definitely want to see mountain.

  • 日本阿爾卑斯山脈給你滿滿風景的大平台,上山可以做第二層(上層),下山可以做第一層(下層),山頂有景觀平台、迷你版的雪壁穿梭其間,第二段纜車站有免費的足湯可泡腳,建議可以買奧飛驒套票,含車資來回及纜車來回,很划算  more »
