This ropeway takes visitors over the Kankakei Gorge, a canyon in the middle of Shodo Island. Considered one of Japan’s three most beautiful gorge, it becomes particularly popular during the fall in the second half of November, when the green trees turn to colorful reds, oranges and yellows. The station near Shodo’s highest peak features a souvenir shop and restaurant. Both stations are accessible by car and have parking lots. The upper station has an observation deck that boast a panoramic view over the gorge, Shodo Island and the Seto Inland Sea. As operating hours vary depending on the season, make sure to check their website before your visit.
