Usuzan Ropeway, Sobetsu-cho

4.2
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Sobetsu-cho
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. Feast your eyes on the huge crater (formed in 1977 during the third of four eruptions that century), as it bellows great plumes of steam.

  • Is the aerial tram connects to the USU Volcano Observatory from the foot of Mt. Showa shinzan. Lake Toya, a majestic volcano Bay comes into view as the more advanced landscapes, landscapes of Showa shinzan volcano seen from above — very impressive. It is nice to get discount if you use the coupon rates are also available in the toyako Onsen area, such as tourist information.

  • Aerobic usuzan ropeway is from date of Auditors 20 minutes near toyako Onsen attractions by car. I'm sorry because I've been in the car but not parking at an additional cost ordinary riding 500 yen is in the premises, souvenir shop, restaurant, glass museum, volcano Science Museum, have a clear and half-day culture tourism. Main is still Mount Usu and showashinzan! Elevation ~-low (laughs) is at 1,500 yen (¯ ▽ ¯) money don't pay me directly so pardon I cableway payashapayasha photo by is (laughs) compared with old times greatly increased. Capacity: 78 persons! I (; ́Д ') was supposed to be a little 並bimashou who wants to watch the landscape slowly 15 minutes feeling so! (¯ ▽ ¯) recommend a view of all sides will climb down on the right side, so! It is on the left side! (Lol) that takes about 10 minutes or so I went in early October, unusually early autumn was brilliant. Also please also sea breeze location (see map of Hokkaido), so challenge in warm clothes overlook Mt. Showa shinzan and Lake Toya and get to the top. Showa shinzan and Lake Toya Lake in Kazan eruption is the white smoke rising from the mountain mountain. Is to have higher lookout from the top station, the road condition and mats are drawn, is safe, but is quite a distance, sloping from high-heeled shoes is not going. (Lol) will lend free stick of wood, and then don't be shy, let's use. And I climb over! (¯ ▽ ¯) ✌ can admire mount komagatake volcano Bay, Hakodate area, ezo Fuji mount yotei. Who have prepared climbing style and route 360-degree landscape of Hokkaido here around fire engineering mouth further, but only let's go! Learn manners and distress is a nuisance to everyone going on a trip, and it's from doubles as a hobby, will travel (lol)
