We hiked the whole way up instead of taking a cable car and it was definitely worth it as we passed only a few people on our way (as well as a temple in a forest). The top is quite crowded but no wonder - views are beautiful and rhododendrons just add to this fantastic scenery.

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... (so dress well)

At the top, there is a walking trail that brings u up a little higher for what i imagine to be a better view... but because we were freezing, we did not follow the walking trail (which was a shame)
anyway you can walk up the station building, and get quite a good unblocked view of Beppu too... but be careful because I slipped due to icy steps

we went in the afternoon (to avoid the morning sun - I imagined that it was facing east so morning sun would not be ideal for photos)
(sorry this is same review i gave for the beppu ropeway coz its kind of related)

Our visit this year was early November. Initially, we intended to see autumn foliage. While we were driving Oita Expressway, we confirmed the color in the peak. On the way to the peak on ropeway gondola, we saw the autumn colors. Meanwhile, there was an announcement that said fields of clouds was there, which was unexpected bonus for us. It was near noon, and it was easy ropeway ride. Fields of clouds view along with the autumn foliage was really beautiful.
