About Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama

The Shinhotaka Ropeway is one of the most fun ways to get around the city and is preferred to reach Shinhotaka Onsen. See the gorgeous view of the Japanese north Alps as you are taken through the beautiful terrain. During winters, the snow magnifies the beauty all around with the snow-capped mountains adding to its charm. Do carry a camera with you during the ride to take panoramic pictures.

The observation deck located at the Nishihotakaguchi station is the perfect place to spend a few minutes admiring the mountains.

Shinhotaka Ropeway, Takayama Reviews

  • Last bus to Hirayu and Takayama at 16.55. Try to avoid tour group, you get stuck in a gondola like a sardine.

  • Here we use rope-way to roof observation deck. When we arrived, snow was still falling. It is very cold. On the roof observation deck also has restaurant by using vending machine. There also snow corridor, if the weather is fine, you will enjoy however for my is very cold, we can only stay for a moment and hurry to go inside because it is super cold.

  • Spend around 2-3hours going up and down the ropeway just to enjoy the view at the top. Suggest to spend a night in one of the onsen ryokan nearby!

  • Mostly my fault, but if you go on a rainy day be prepared for no view and a pricey bus ride. There's some great hiking though, and the fall colours are nice!

  • A great day out going up the mountain. Would highly recommend. If you are going in the winter then wrap up warm! It was -12c at the top!
