Akechidaira Ropeway

Akechidaira is located on top of the Nikko Daini Irohazaka Route. From there, you can take a ropeway to go up to an observation deck where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Kegon Falls, Lake Chuzenji, and Mt. Nantaisan.
This is one of the most beautiful spots in Nikko, and only from there you can enjoy various seasonal views; Rhododendron flowers in spring, fresh green in the beginning of summer, deep green in the middle of summer, very colorful leaves in autumn, and the field covered with beautiful snow and the blue sky in winter.



    Among ropeways currently in operation in Japan, Akechidaira Ropeway is the 2nd oldest with the history since 1933, next to Yoshino Ropeway in Nara prefecture.

    You can enjoy various splendid views depending on the season from Akechidaira Ropeway Obserbation Deck.
