It’s worth a visit. The gondola ride up is short around 10 mins up and down. But the autumn foliage view is spectacular when I ascended up to Hakkoda Station. We were here on 3 November. As we reach the top, the entire place is...More

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

It is worth travelling there to take the rope way to the TOP of the mountain. The view on a clear day is awesome. The wait for the ropeway can be long during peak hours.

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.
