I took the rope chair and OMG there was not seat-belt. It was very scary. What would happened if i leaned forward accidentally? What about if it just stopped all out of sudden. I could not recommend it unless you really have your GUTS.

I actually went up and down in one trip because I remember chair lifts when I was a kid and hadn't seen one in ages. Children under 6 years of age cannot use it. There is a safety catching cage under the entire route. Enjoy...More

nice place to visit Really fun and easy way to access the castle. The ropeway has some good views over the town, and it is a good way to get to the castle.

Good to visit and walk. The view from there is fanstastic. I recommend for both families, friends and couples.

This is a ski lift arrangement there is no harness but it's very secure, I would not recommend you put young children on this but for older children and adults it's a bit of a thrill ride which we enjoyed.

Used this to access Matsuyama castle. The chair lift hours in March were shorter than the tram so take that into consideration when planning your visit. Views on the chair lift were amazing but if you're afraid of heights stick with the tram. There are...More

Lucky for a clear day where the views of the city was possible. Best of all was that it saved us from the long hike up and down the hill to get to the castle. Can get extremely packed in like a can of sardines....More

松山に行くといつもこのロープウエイ乗ります。ただ、行だけ乗ります。帰りは歩いて、ゆっくり散策できます。松山城は小さいですが落ち着くお城です。ぜひ訪れてください。  it's pretty refreshing to get on this ! you can see a beautiful seanary ! you can choose either one way trip or round trip., i prefer one way trip to round trip. you can enjoy walking around the castle.

Great views up and down and no waiting for a chair if it is a nice day. There is still a few hundred meters to go to the castle once you get off your chair or gondola. Staff very friendly and dressed in costumes.
