I have not been there myself.

From April to November, there are about a dozen bus round trips per day between Takayama and the Shin-Hotaka Ropway bas station. The one way trip takes about 90 minutes and costs 2100 Yen.

If you start the day early and don't spend too much time on the mountain, it looks like you will be able to also visit a hot spring in the same day relatively easily.

I imagine that on busy days, e.g. weekends during the autumn leaf season, you will have to expect waiting times for riding the ropeway.

What discount is this? 2007/9/24 19:35
Found this page on the website of Shin Hotaka Cable Car.

Looks like some value-saving package but I can't read Japanese. Can someone help?

From the little that I can gather, looks like it includes (1) bus trip from Takayama to Shin Hotaka
(2) cable car 2-way
(3) day use onsen

Am I correct? Also is the bus trip two way or one way?
