Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama
Categories: Lookouts, Tourist Spots
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.

日本アルプスの絶景を、体力を使うことなく満喫できるロープウェイです！（天気の悪い日は行く価値が無いかもですが････）穂高の急峻な峰が迫ってくるようです。Aerial tramway you can enjoy without spending strength of the Japan Alps. (But it is not worth the bad weather...) is like coming up the steep peaks of the Hotaka.show original
3連休の最終日、やっと晴れた日で多くの人で賑わっていました。 車で第二ロープウェー乗り場まで行きました。 通勤ラッシュのようなゴンドラ 笑 で山頂へ。鉄塔を通過するたびに歓声が上がっていました。 眼下に少し雲海が広がり、秋晴れの澄んだ空気に山々が美しく見えました。 紅葉はまだだったので、季節を変えてまた訪れたいと思いました。The final day of the three-day weekend in the last sunny day it was crowded with many people. Vehicle No. 2 went to the cable car station. Gondola lol like commuter rush to the Summit. Each time you pass the tower was up cheers. Spread a little clouds on a clear autumn air seemed beautiful mountains. Autumn is still because it was thought I changed the season, you want to visit again.show original
A great day out going up the mountain. Would highly recommend. If you are going in the winter then wrap up warm! It was -12c at the top!
Nice views of the surrounding mountains. Not very touristy during my visit. Easily accessible by car from the takayama and okuhida
Cable cars are great!!! Do plan ahead, since there may be a lot of tourist group queueing!! During February, the top level are around -10s degrees celcius...
