We went there on a foggy and rainy day and the management did put out a sign that said visibility is extremely low due to the fog. That's why we didn't get on the ropeway. And we appreciate how the Japanese make things transparent. But...More

Ride the Tobu Nikko bus heading for Chuzenji Lake and make the stop at Akechidaira. I was not lucky. Arrived here and it was empty because the fog was so thick and no one rides the ropeway..

It was a very clear day so the views from the observation plateau were stunning. We had a perfect view of Kegon waterfall and Lake Chuzenji. We waited about half an hour to get on the cable car, but it was worth the wait.

Amazing views of the area, the observation deck is accessed via gondola and is on the bus route up to Lake Chuzenji. Go during spring or autumn for best views.

You will ride a cable car ride to arrive at the Observation area. From here is a magnificent westerly view of Chuzenji Lake and Kegon Falls.
