Tairyuji Ropeway (太龍寺ロープウェイ)

4.5

Other Vehicle

The Tairyuji Ropeway connects the Washi-no-Sato roadside station rest area in Naka Town, Naka County, Tokushima Prefecture with the Tairyu-ji Temple, which is the 21st temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. With a total length of 2,775 meters, it is the longest ropeway in Western Japan. The Ropeway crosses the Naka River (a Class A major river) and passes over 600-meter-high hills. In the past, pilgrims could only travel to the Tairyu-ji Temple to worship by ascending a steep mountain path, a serious obstacle that was known colloquially as the “pilgrim slide” because it was so difficult to climb up. Following the construction of the Ropeway, it was possible for larger numbers of pilgrims to visit the Temple.

          The southeastern corner of Shikoku is home to Tokushima prefecture, a region celebrated for its luscious nature and the nation’s favorite Awa Odori, an energetic dance to which an annual summer festival has been dedicated. Keeping the upbeat tempo, whirlpools excite the Naruto sea off Tokushima, while inland, dramatic cliffs line the Iya Valley, promising unrivaled views of vast and vibrant scenery.
