Ishizuchi Tozan Ropeway石鎚登山ロープウェイ
This rope-way cable car leads to the peak of Mt. Ishizuchi, western Japan's tallest sacred mountain. Starting from Shimodani Station at the foot of the mountain with an elevation of 455 meters, the cable car takes an eight-minute trip up to Joju Station at a height of 1300 meters. From the cable car you can look out over nature including the vast Kamegamori forest, and from Joju Station you can also see out to the Seto Inland Sea. As the cable car ascends, a cool breeze fills the car, even during the summer season, and there's a picnic area which has the Japanese Horned Beetle Dome, where you're almost guaranteed to see a horned beetle. During the summer and fall season they offer a popular Mt. Ishizuchi Star Night Tour, showing off the nightscapes and the starry heavens where you can take an exciting stroll under the stars.
