Shinhotaka Ropeway新穂高ロープウェイ

4.5

Other Vehicle

The Shinhotaka Ropeway is an aerial lift transport system linking Shin-Hotaka Onsen Station with Nishihotakaguchi Station in the Oku-Hida Onsen (Hot Springs) District of Gifu Prefecture. The Ropeway comprises two sections: the No. 1 Ropeway and No. 2 Ropeway. By traveling on both sections in succession, visitors can reach the top of the mountain. The No. 2 Ropeway is the only aerial lift system in Japan to feature double-decker gondolas; passengers can enjoy the sensation of “strolling in the air” at an altitude of over 2,000 meters above sea-level while looking out at the magnificent scenery below. The roof observation deck at the mountain-top Nishihotakaguchi Station offers an almost 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains of Japan’s Northern Alps; this view was awarded two stars in the Michelin Green Guide to Japan.

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
