TheYoshino Omine Ropeway takes visitors to Yoshinoyama Station in about three minutes from Senbon-guchi Station which is just a three-minute walk from Yoshino Station on the Kintetsu Yoshino Line. It is the oldest ropeway in Japan, having been in operation since 1929, and the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers has registered it as an example of the country’s mechanical heritage. The ropeway normally operates from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and makes four round trips per hour. The number of runs is increased during the cherry blossom season in April, and large numbers of cherry blossom enthusiasts come to enjoy the view of Mount Yoshino through the windows of the ropeway cars.
