Usuzan Ropeway, Sobetsu-cho

4.2
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Usu-gun
Ride along Usuzan Ropeway, taking in far-reaching views from the surrounding countryside to the smoldering peaks of Mt. Usu. Once at the top, you can observe steaming vents and the Pacific beyond at the crater basin observation deck, less than ten minutes on foot from the gondola station.
