This is a must go place when you are in the area. Take the Gondola up and you will be rewarded with a superb view. Make sure it's a bright and cloudless day.

The ropeway is a must for visitors coming here no matter it is a gloomy or sunny day. If you are lucky you would be able to see the 'sea of cloud ' when you step out of the cable car station. In a sunny...More

Well worth the ride up the gondola (and back down again if you don't ski!) at least once! Better if you DO ski, of course, as you then get to enjoy the trip back down.

We took about 15’ cable car ride up and walked around. Cloud walk offers nice view. Good and bad, it is super clear day, we didn’t see unkai. Instead, we saw beautiful view including Tower. Roast marshmallows and sausage is fun!

Took a 15 minutes cable car ride up to Unkai Terrace. Bought couple of expensive marshmallows from the small cafe there for the kids to roast. Took in the sights and then came back down. Nice view but way too cold to stay long. Good...More

Yes you can. We went up at about 10am on 5th March 2018 and there was a little queue of some 10 odd people in front of us. After the view we came back down and the queue by then was about 50 people.

Take a train to Tomamu station and the hotel shuttle bus will be there waiting for the hotel guest. You can email the hotel to confirm.
