Other Vehicle

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.

Review of Ishizuchi Tozan Ropeway

Reviewed:2019/11/26 紅葉の石鎚山
ロープウェイ乗場の近くに有料駐車場があります。寂れた観光地感はありますが、11月中旬は紅葉で素晴らしいロケーションでした。
Reviewed:2019/11/05 山頂成就駅とリフト利用で山頂成就社お勧め
大型観光バスで行きました。下界は晴れですが、山の中腹は雲ありました。紅葉は山頂付近のみ。関西伊吹山や、琵琶湖バレイの展望と比べると少し見劣りすると思いましたが、山はどこでもリフレッシュできます。
Reviewed:2019/08/20 石鎚登山の時間短縮には必要なロープウェイ
石鎚山の登山のため利用しました。当ロープウェイは標高455m-1300mを約8分で結ぶため、石鎚山(標高1982m)登頂の時間短縮を図るために必要な乗り物です。以前、ロープウェイを使わずに上り、下ったことがありますが、その時の所要時間と疲れを考えると、断然使ったほうがいいと思います。
ロープウェイの中からの眺望は谷が深くてもうひとつという感じでした。
石鎚登山の他に石鎚神社中宮成就社の参拝にも利用...

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
