Went up in late November and it was snowing very heavily. We thought of taking a chance as the weather can be better up there but we waited and decided it will not change. Better to ensure the weather is good before you go up...More

Yes, there is a bus running from Aomori JR station and from Shin-Aomori station - not very frequent, however and the last bus leaves from Hakkoda Ropeway station around 4 pm.
