This ropeway takes you up Mount Zao, passing the plateau of juhyo (monster-looking iced trees) and reaching a peak where the large statue of a guardian deity sits quietly. Located 3km from this peak is a crater lake of cobalt blue with sunset-colored volcanic rocks.

Nice place to visit although the temperature is very different from what at the base so do take care and not to forget take low temperature measures.the price is 3000yen per person feels a little high as the service of the rope way is not worthy but the views for the top covers all .the trees there looks very different (like cristmas tree) covered in snow.a must go place if you’re in the region.

A must place to visit. Amazing views on the cable car and the highest point. Please try to come on sunny day in the morning.

We came for the snow monsters, but  we were a wee bit unlucky, the unexpected warmer winter melted lots of  "monsters". Still we "had a blast", not to mention having the pleasure of enjoying rotenburos with plenty of snow around.

Very cold and strong windy in Jan. But it is so awesome trip. Beautiful sights more than what you could image. Safe driveway and wonderful service from the staff here.
