Kanzanji Ropeway

Kanzanji Ropeway - A gorgeous midair stroll over the lake


Kanzanji Ropeway is the only ropeway in Japan that passes over a lake. From Lake Hamana Palpal to the observation deck and Hamanako Music Box Museum on top of Mt. Okusa, the ropeway stretches 723 meters, allowing riders to enjoy a four-minute cruise through the air.
Directly below you are the calm waters of Lake Hamana and the grand natural beauty of Mt. Okusa. If you look further, you can see the Pacific Ocean and on a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji. As you rise in elevation, all of the rich scenery around Lake Hamana will be spread out before you.


At Okusayama Station, the upper terminus of the ropeway, there is the Hamanako Music Box Museum which exhibits some of the world's most valuable music boxes. On the observation deck, there is a carillon (set of bells) set up which plays melodies that match the season. The view of Inner Lake Hamana from the observation deck, made even more beautiful by the charming lilts of the music boxes, is definitely a sight to see.
