A Magnificent Two-Star Panorama

From the Shinhotaka Hot Springs at the foot the mountain to the peak of the mountain there spans two 3,200-meter ropeways that take visitors 2,156 meters up to a world above the clouds. The Western Shinhotaka observation deck received two stars in the Michelin Guide. Home to Japan's first two-story gondola lift, drift through the sky while enjoying the spectacular scenery all around you. Enjoy the green fields and gorgeous flowers in summer, all the colorful leaves in fall and the snowy corridors that carve through the landscape in winter.
