If you are in the area, might as well take the Ropeway, It's a slow ride maybe around 10 mins one way, so you can just sit there, relax and enjoy the view.

While you can take a bus to the ropeway or a train and walk from Doai Station, I would recommend that a visitor rent a car and drive to the base of the ropeway. The scenery is awesome and being in a private car, you...More

It was rather cold and started to drizzle when we took the Ropeway up Tanigawadake. But to our surprise,there was a beautiful rainbow that stretched right across the forested mountain slope. When we exited the ropeway, we went straight to buy tickets for the chair-lifts...More
