Nihondaira Ropeway is closed (1st December to 30th December 2017.)

Hello, Welcome to our blog.

This is Hirokane at Local Travel partners (a travel agency) in Shizuoka, Japan.

Today, I would like to inform you about the Nihondaira Ropeway.

From 1st December to 30th December 2017, 
it is closed due to annual maintenance.

Please note that the slope  for wheelchair users at Nihondaira
Plateau is  under construction until the end of December, 2017.

This ropeway (cable car) is very popular with travelers 
who visit Shimizu in Shizuoka CIty.

It connects Nihondaira Plateau and Kunozan Toshogu Shrine in 5 minutes.

The view from this ropeway is spectacular!

Kunozan Toshogu Shrine

It is a spectacular shrine!

You can visit the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine by climbing up
these steps from the foot of this mountain (not from Nihondaira)
(1,153 steps)

If you are planning to visit Nihondaira and Kunozan Toshugu Shrine
in December, please keep this information in your mind.

Thank you!
