The views were great, even in Jan when nothing was blossoming. The cable car was great as well, although it was much faster than expected....only 5 mins per way. Round trip costed 1350 yen. Hiking oneway is a good choice if weather permits....(but not in Jan)

To be fair, this is famous in the fall and we went in summer- not really worth it in summer, but from the pictures they have around the fall should be gorgeous. If youre not there in the fall (late novemeber Id assume) - dont bother.

Nothing much to recommend this except that if you are looping the island it will invariably on your route. There are a lot of cablecar based attractions in Japan like Miyajima and Hakone etc. This is merely somewhere among them. A nice view of the gorge, but certainly not the 4-5 star attraction that the Japanese reviews suggest it to... More
