Overview of the ropeway




Hakkoda Ropeway was established in October 1968.
You can enjoy mountain skiing from the end of November through to the middle of May. As the snow melts, the mountains are filled with great many alpine plants in bloom. Walking the nature trail from the Summit Park Station, you can easily enjoy watching marshes and alpine vegetation, and it takes about 30-60 minutes.

There’s a hiking course which leads to Sukayu hot-spring spa via Mt. Akakuradake, Mt. Idodake, Mt. Odake (the highest peak of the North Hakkoda), Kami-kenashi marsh and Shimo-kenashi marsh. It’s also popular among tourists.

The gondola of this ropeway was renewed in May 2003. It can carry up to 101 passengers at a time. And it is made by CWA Constructions SA/Corp. in Switzerland.
