Hakkaisan Ropeway (八海山ロープウェー)

 0257753311  Nigata Pref. Minamiuonumashi Yamaguchi 1610

This ropeway can be found at Muikamachi Hakkaisan Ski Resort, approximately 20 minutes by car from the Kan-etsu Expressway's Muikamachi Interchange. Its charm lies in the 360-degree panoramic view from the gondola. Especially in the fall, it is a well-known sightseeing spot for people wanting to see the autumn leaves, which cover the whole mountainside. The ropeway stretches from the station at the foot of the mountain at an elevation of 376 meters, to the mountain peak station at 1,147 meters. In the mountain climbing season, it is also possible to climb to the peak of Mt. Hakkai, one of Echigo's three peaks.
