    Oita Pref. Beppushi Minamitateishi Kanbara 10-7
    A ropeway built on Mt. Tsurumi located on the west side of urban Beppu. The ropeway’s large gondolas can accommodate 101 passengers and travel from Beppu Kogen Station 500 meters above sea level to Tsurumi Sanjo Station near the top of the mountain 1,300 meters above sea level in about 10 minutes. Each year on New Year’s Day the ropeway operates before sunrise and bustles with visitors come to see the first sunrise of the new year from the observatory at the top of the mountain.

    We went up there with our baby in a carrier. It was 0 degree Celsius so it was slightly cold. However, we walked up to the top of the mountain so it was not hot at all. It’s worth our time.

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
