English Guide > Ropeway

One of the world’s biggest ropeways with a capacity of 166 passengers

Enjoy superb views on the seven-minute ride to the resort, which sits at an elevation of around 1,000m.
The view from the summit area includes the Uonuma Plain and Yuzawa City while the three great Echigo mountains, Mt. Iiji and the Tanigawa mountain range stand tall right before one’s eyes.
In the green season, you can take an indulgent break at the outstanding café offering magical views or on a terrace surrounded by beautiful sunlight filtering through the trees.
The whole family can also stroll through more than 200 types of plants blooming in Alp no Sato, Japan’s largest rock garden of alpine plants, and have fun on the bobsleds in summer.
Winter provides the opportunity for skiing and snowboarding and to use the ropeway for sightseeing of the snowy landscape on crisp, clear winter days.
There are a number of onsen (hot spring) accommodation facilities nearby due to the resort’s proximity to the onsen area around Echigo Yuzawa Station.
