Shinhotaka Ropeway.

One of nice place in Winter around Takayama is Shinhotaka Rope way.

The Shinhotaka Ropeway is the largest of its kind in Asia, and riding the gondola up to an elevation of 2,200 meters, you are greeted by a grand panoramic view from the observation platform at Nishi-Hotaka Station.

In the winter, you can enjoy snow wall , hiking, and hot spring.

If you would like to go to Shinhotaka ,there is good combination ticket.
