Bought the discounted ropeway tickets from the tourist information center at Izukyu Shimoda Station. The view from the ropeway station on top of Mt Nesugata was amazing. The park itself was like a "secret garden" awaiting for you to discover!

2018/05/24 下田寢姿山自然公園:下田是位於伊豆半島南端的一個小城市,寢姿山因為山的外形很像少女仰臥的睡姿,所以稱為寢姿山。從寢姿山頂向遠處眺望,可將下田市街、下田港和伊豆七島等風景盡收眼底。The flowers bloom in the Mt. Nesugata Natural Park in Shimoda, Izu Peninsula, Japan. The view of Shimoda Port from the summit was magnificent.

Going to Mount Nesugatayama is beyond my expectations. Riding the ropeway up high and looking down the town of Shimoda is so beautiful, strolling the well-maintained gardens and viewing the ocean/Izu 7 islands by the side just to good to believe, calm feel and so...More

For the price of 1080 yen per person I felt it was a bit expensive for what we got. There is a nice view of the Shimoda bay and general area from the top, a very tacky gift shop and what appeared to be a...More
