Ropeway Experience

Japan has a lot of wonderful natural landscapes and will become more beautiful if you can see the whole landscape from above. Nature lovers won’t want to miss the chance to view an unforgettable landscape panorama from the view of a ropeway.

Ropeways or cablecars are a convenient means of accessing mountainous terrain without having to hike up. Because of the high elevation, visitors are usually treated to great views.

For viewing the scenery of Japanese nature, there is perhaps no more breathtaking means than by riding a ropeway. Located among popular mountainous areas, ropeways provide visitors a stunning aerial view of Japan’s natural beauty. In fact, Japan’s 4 kilometer Hakone Ropeway in Kanagawa is one of the longest in the world. If you are looking to step away from the more urban areas of Japan, why not take a ride on a mountainside ropeway for an incredible panoramic view far above the treetops?
