Great trip, the views at the top are amazing and allows tourists to see all of Kofu. The ropeway itself was calming. Beautiful landscape from an elevated standpoint.

On our hike through Shosen Gorge we went up the ropeway. Gondolas leave every 20 minutes. At the top there is a small shrine and cafe. Great photo opportunities. We were lucky that we got to see Mount Fuji. Very impressive.
