“Beautiful views of the Alps”
Review of Shinhotaka Ropeway

Shinhotaka Ropeway

I travelled here on a day trip from Takayama at the end of May and there was still snow on the mountains! Buses left from the Nohi bus building next door to the train station in Takayama, and it took about 90 minutes to reach to ropeway. There wasn't many food options once you reach there so it's a good idea to pack your own lunch. There were spectacular views from the top! The only downfall is that a roundtrip to the ropeway from Takayama takes a whole day, so is only worthwhile if you have a little time up your sleeves.

We varied from our train tour to add a bus trip from Takayama to Matsumoto. Fabulous decision. Easy bus transfers and the Ropeway provides unbelieveable views. Highly recommend a stop here!!

We took a day trip to Shin Hodaka from Takayama with a pass that cover both the bus ride from takayama to shin hodaka and the ropeway up to the mountain. For Y5000, i think this pass is excellent value. We got this from the JTB office beside the JR train station.
Unfortunately it snowed heavily on the day we went, it was early April 2012. It was -12C on the top. We saw nothing as it was all foggy up there except for a snow man ! But we still enjoyed our day out here.

2800yen for return ticket can be a bit too expensive.
But the view is awesome especially in fall - with autumn color of leaves.
You can see Northern Alps up-close.
