You can arrive with the bus from Beppu station in 20 minutes . Ticket is not expansive. The ropeway is old but in excellent condition. You can enjoy a great view on Beppu and Oita

My kids enjoyed the cable car ride very much, and when we are at the top, they were ecstatic to find snow (or ice) all around on the ground. Very cold and windy though. I reckon worth a visit if you have young kids....

Yes there was snow on the ground in patches and a giant thermometer to tell you why there wasn't more. Very friendly staff but limited English so need charade skills for special requests. Views from a short walk away from where the ropeway ends are...More

Visit only when weather is good. As the bus passes by Umi-jigoku bus stop, I actually reorganised my visits according to weather. Spent the cloudy morning at the surrounding jigokus near Umi-jigoku, and when the sky cleared, took the bus up to the ropeway station...More
