This place will make you feel the vastness of Tanigawadake's nature.  It takes only about 20 mins by public bus from Minakami Station to Mt Tanigawa Station.  You can purchase a discounted package to & fro bus & ropeway ticket at Yen 2,800 per pax at the Information Office across Minakami Station.  When you reach Tenjin-daira station via the ropeway car it is only 3/4 way to the mountain top.  If you want to go up further, you will need to pay another Yen700 per pax to & fro ride on a double seater chair lift to reach the Tenji mountain top. You will see a fantastic view with plenty of greens, wild flowers and mountains, (as well as insects in Summer).
