Owner description: Superb view of the Japan Alps! The northern Yatsugatake ropeway ranges between Kita Yokodake and Mt.Yatsugatake located at the northern tip of Yatsugatake, and runs about 466 m in height from the mountain foot station (altitude 1,771 m) to the summit station (2,237 m) in about 7 minutes . Meanwhile, a sky trip overlooking the ever-changing mountain landscape in front of you is a powerful full mark

This ropeway gondola costs 900yen single trip, 1800yen for return (there are multiple or oneday tickets as well), and it runs every 20 min. (This ropeway stops operation from 2nd of April - 27 April for checkups.)

Maybe two different reasons to take this gondola in winter season. Skiing / snowboarding or hiking. I took this gondola to climb Mt. Kita Yokodake.

It is 7min ride, but you can enjoy awesome view of North, Central, and South Alps, and Mt. Tateshina.

You can go to 2237m high effortless using this ropeway, and start climbing Mt.Kita yokodake. It takes about 1hour and half to climb the mountain. In winter, you need crampons and proper winter hiking wears.
I rented snowshoes (2000yen) before I get on the ropeway, and enjoyed snowshoeing as well.

It is not cheap, but not that expensive compared to similar ropeways.
