Taking the ropeway is an excellent means of safely seeing the views surrounding Tanigawadake and the wall of mountains that divide Gunma prefecture and Niigata prefecture. It offers breath-taking views in all seasons for families, couples and the elderly. In Winter time, skiiers and snow boarders use the rope way to reach the skiing slopes at the top of the... More
