Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama

4.3
#2 of 26 in Sightseeing in Takayama
Lookout Tourist Spot
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.

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.
