What a lovely way to view the countryside, like being up in a balloon - especially in the autumn. Nice hikes at the top too.

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.
