We walked up (about 30 mins. but all the way up hill) instead as we didn't want to waste time waiting for the ropeway and found out that the chairlift or ropeway was extremely short. After that, you still have to walk up a little...More

There are 2 types of transportation to the castle, we choose the ropeway lift up and down. But it is quicker to take the cable car. enjoyed the view

Very smooth and cheap ride to the top. Didn't take the chairlift but it looked fine too but if you don't like either of these there are steps as well.

I took the rope chair and OMG there was not seat-belt. It was very scary. What would happened if i leaned forward accidentally? What about if it just stopped all out of sudden. I could not recommend it unless you really have your GUTS.

This is a ski lift arrangement there is no harness but it's very secure, I would not recommend you put young children on this but for older children and adults it's a bit of a thrill ride which we enjoyed.

Used this to access Matsuyama castle. The chair lift hours in March were shorter than the tram so take that into consideration when planning your visit. Views on the chair lift were amazing but if you're afraid of heights stick with the tram. There are...More
