    渋川方面から行くと伊香保温泉手前にあります。馬にヤギ、羊にウサギと触れあえます。入場料の他に、餌やりようの野菜などにちょこちょこと掛かります。一部ペイペイで支払い可能でした。ウサギのふれあいは時間が決まってました。 乗馬体験やアーチェリーもあり小学校高学年でも楽しめたようです。大人からすると入場料は少し高いかな。

    This ropeway extends from Higashi-ogawa, Katashina Village, Tone County to a 2,000-meter-high point on Mt. Nikko-Shirane. It is 2,500 meters long in total and has a 600-meter difference in elevation, and it takes about 15 minutes to cross one way.

    このロープウェイがあるおかげで登山が楽になります。登山しない人もロープウェイの上の景色は特別。登山のために、もう少し早い時間からロープウェイが動くといいな、とは思う。
