The summit station can be reached in approximately five minutes, and a majestic view of the Echigo Plains and the mountains can be seen in the distance as you climb the mountain. Additionally, in the summer, there is a Yakei and Hoshizora Cruise (Night View and Starry Sky Cruise) available for people to enjoy watching the sun set over the Sea of Japan and to see the vast Echigo Plains at night.

And in the fall, the autumn leaves cover the mountains, giving the ropeway gorgeous scenery in every season.
