    Shizuoka Pref. Hamamatsushi Nishi-ku Kanzanjichou 1891
    A gondola in Kanzanji-cho, Nishi War, Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture that connects Kanzanji Station near Hamanako Palpal Theme Park with Okusayama Station near the Hamanako Orgel Museum. It's famous for being Japan's first gondola to cross over lake water and while crossing you get a beautiful 360-degree view of Lake Hamanako.

    It looks great in pictures but its a very short ropeway and view is not that spectacular. There really is nothing to see on top besides the Music Box Museum which is really small.

Shizuoka Areas

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
