On the day we went on the ropeway there were clouds and by the time we got to the top there was little to see. We noticed how run down the building at the top was and it desperately needs some funds injected into it...More

The ropeway (cable car) is a way out of Beppu but there are plenty of buses to get there if you do not have a car. We enjoyed the ride up and the views but it only takes and hour or so to do everything...More

You can arrive with the bus from Beppu station in 20 minutes . Ticket is not expansive. The ropeway is old but in excellent condition. You can enjoy a great view on Beppu and Oita

My kids enjoyed the cable car ride very much, and when we are at the top, they were ecstatic to find snow (or ice) all around on the ground. Very cold and windy though. I reckon worth a visit if you have young kids....

the ropeway runs every 20 mins, and it is one of the longest ropeway rides i have been on. it was winter so it was very cold up there... a drop of more than 5 degree from the bottom of the ropeway to the top......More

After our visit at Yufuin while before heading to Beppu, we stopped here for a little visit. The ride was swift and stable with excellent view. Once you get to the top, there are some god-hunting paths where you can easily follow with the map...More

Yes there was snow on the ground in patches and a giant thermometer to tell you why there wasn't more. Very friendly staff but limited English so need charade skills for special requests. Views from a short walk away from where the ropeway ends are...More

Visit only when weather is good. As the bus passes by Umi-jigoku bus stop, I actually reorganised my visits according to weather. Spent the cloudy morning at the surrounding jigokus near Umi-jigoku, and when the sky cleared, took the bus up to the ropeway station...More

This was a fun, scenic ride. The staff were very friendly, provided us with an english tour translation. We walked around at the top of the mountain which was great. Really good experience!
