Mt. Gozaisho/Gozaisho Ropeway 御在所ロープウエイ

Each time you visit, there is sure to be a new touching feeling caused by the different views of each season.

The ropeway, which takes 12 minutes for a one way ride in the sky, has one of the biggest scales in the world. In spring, azaleas bloom all over, in summer, it is so cool that even the red dragonflies come to escape the heat, and in autumn, you can enjoy the red coloring of leaves from mid October to late November, and the mountain is colored by the dark and light colors of red, yellow and brown. In winter, you will be awed by the beauty of ""frost-covered trees and icefall""!

Mount Gozaisho, which has an elevation of 1,212 m, has many mountain climbing routes, and there are many mountain climbers throughout the year. In winter, there is a skiing ground and a sled section for children. After climbing the mountains or skiing, you should relax yourself in the Yunoyama Hot Spring at the foot of the mountain.
