Mt. Omuro Lift大室山登山リフト

Other Vehicle

Covered by greenery year round, 580 meter tall Mt. Omuro resembles an overturned Japanese bowl. The mountain serves as a symbol of the city of Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture. The Mt. Omuro Lift connects the foot of the mountain and its top, and riders can enjoy a spectacular view during the approximate six minute ride. Note that climbing the mountain on foot is prohibited. The top of the mountain is a 300 meter diameter extinct volcanic crater. Walkers along the Ohachi-meguri trail, which circles the crater, can see the Akaishi Mountains, Mt. Fuji, and the Seven Islands of Izu. Each year on the second Sunday in February, a breathtaking controlled burn is conducted on the mountain. On New Year’s Day, many visitors come to watch the sunrise from the top of the mountain, and the lift begins operation from 5:40 am on the day.

          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.
