Nice Ride

We took this to see the historical Toshugo Shrine and it was fun to look out on the ocean and below at the sharp walled forested sedimentary river bottom deposits.

We took the #42 bus from the terminus in Shizuoka. It took us up the mountain to the ropeway. The actual ropeway portion of our adventure was rather a short ride but the real pleasure was Kunozan Temple and the long beautiful walk down the mountain along the shallow stairway. The stairway itself is wonderful in its construction and the... More

This rope way connects two sightseeing spots, Nihondaira and Kunozan Toshogu shrine. Though the ride takes 5 minutes only, you can enjoy the view around the car. If you can understand Japanese, you may also enjoy the explanation by the guide in the car. Even in the fog, the view from the car was gorgeous! I heard the best season... More

Brief but quite spectacular! I am terrified of heights but I felt quite safe and the view is so spectacular, I quite forgot to be scared! Have your camera at the ready because it doesn't take very long at all, perhaps a couple of minutes but that is all. Enjoy!

What a hoot this ride was. Not only did it offer the great adventure of the cable car trip up the side of the steep mountain and the amazing views at the top of this extraordinary part of Japan, but it also features the hilariously macabre tale of the bunny and the racoon - too unusual to explain in this...

We paid 1000 yen for the ropeway to view Mt Fuji but could not view it. Entrance to shrine and museum need additional entrance fee. So we did not enter. We were happy that a staff at the counter can speak excellent English. That make our day.

I think it was bus number 42 at the Shizuoka station. There is a help shack at the station that will give you a map and point you to the right bus. They speak enough English if you do not speak Japanese. A short 30 minute ride and you are at Nihon Daira Ropeway. I cannot recall the cost, but... More

Visited today and found a lack of reliable information for the non-Japanese speaker about getting there and what is actually there when you do get there. Hopefully this information will be useful for others. The Nihondaira viewing area is at the top of a winding road up the mountain, and consists of several viewing areas from where you have spectacular... More

Took the ropeway to Nihondaira after visiting the Toshogu located at the top of Kunozan. It was a short 10-15 minute ride and the view from the cable car was great. A lady in the cable car was explaining about the view in Japanese which I could not understand. It was unfortunately cloudy when we reached Nihondaira and Mount Fuji... More

I went to Nihondaira which locates at the top of one mountain by Bus no. 42 from Shizuoka station. Then I took a cable car (rope way as it is called locally) down to Kunosan Toshogu Shrine. After walking around and taking pictures I went down 1159 steps on another side of the foothill. Punctuality of all Japanese is noticed... More
