Be enchanted by the view of Lake Hamana turning gold as you pass over high up in the air!
At about 73 meters long and 60 meters above the lake surface at its highest, this ropeway offers 360-degree panoramic views and is the only one in Japan that passes over a lake. The roughly 4-minute ride offers panoramic views of Lake Hamana beneath your eyes and the whole of Hamamatsu City in the distance. Many tourists visit to see views which are quite unique to this spot. The climax takes place at dusk. The lake is utterly beautiful and fascinating as it turns gold. From the observation deck at the top of Mt. Okusa at the end of the ropeway, you can see Lake Hamana as well as expansive views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance.
