40分の散歩コースしか歩けなかったがとてもいい!景色が素晴らしいかった。紅葉シーズンはきっと絶対いい!と思う。I think the summer is also good and I'm convinced that the colored leaves season is wonderful surely.

駒ヶ岳ロープウエイのおかげで、楽に千畳敷カールに行くことができます。夏にはそこで素敵なアルプスの野花を楽しむことができます。ただし8月中旬は、日本では夏休みシーズンで混むので、8月上旬か下旬に訪れることをお勧めします。また、そこからわずか2時間で標高2,956mの木曽駒ヶ岳山頂に到着できます。
You can get to Senjojiki cirque easily thanks to Komagadake cable cars. You are able to look at some kinds of pretty alpine wildflowers there in summer. I recommend you go there at the beginning or ending of August, because it is so crowded at the middle of August due to summer vacation in Japan. In addition, you can also arrive at the top of Mt. Kiso-Komagadake for only two hours by walk, the altitude of which is 2,956 meters.

The Senjojiki Cirque is accessible year round thanks to the Komagatake Ropeway. The summit station of this aerial tram is the highest point accessible by public transportation in Japan at 2,612 meters above sea level. From the middle of April to the end of May the company that owns the ropeway sets up a T-bar lift for determined/daring skiers. The run is not that challenging however and I've always opted to hike to the summit of the cirque and snowboard down one of the more challenging chutes between the cliffs. The chutes look like the kind of terrain seen in ski/snowboard films and anybody watching you ride from below will think you some kind of olympic rider. In reality, the chutes range in steepness and width from about the same as an advanced or expert run at a ski area, right up to ski movie level steepness and narrowness. If you've got the skills it's worth the hike and the ride down.
The cirque is beatiful any time of year. It's an "effort-reduced" hike in the summer that beats the heat, and a glorious place to view the autumn foliage from October to November. The view across the valley to the Southern Japanese Alps and Mt. Fuji rising beyond them is one of my favorites in Japan.

This review lost one point because I found it fairly expensive. Pay for parking, then pay for the bus, then pay for the gondola. Overall about USD$60 per person. The second point lost is nature's fault as it was a cloudy day and the spectacular views were not to be seen. To avoid dissapointment go when it is perfectly blue skies. We were somewhat deceived by the fact it was sunny in the valley.

Probably would give it 5 out of 5 had it been a nice day weather wise and it did not cost as much Yen as it did to get there!

What can I say...
it was just gorgeous, that is it.

The only thing that I should mention to you is that you can't get to the bottom of the gondola with your own car. You need to leave your car at the Shinobidaira bus station and take their bus that goes on such a narrow road for 30 minutes. It's narrower than regular one-way streets. So that's why they have the system I guess. And the best is to start this from the early morning around 8:00. The summer is their busiest time!

There are so many beautiful mountains in Nagano!!! This is one of them. If you love mountains and climbing, you should visit here once in your life for sure.
