Mt. Kurodake Stroller and Sounkyo Gorge Spa Tour (Excluding Multilingual Audio System)
The Kurodake ropeway takes you to the splendid autumn foliage worth seeing in Daisetsuzan mountains.
“The Kurodake Ropeway that holds 101 people will take you to the fifth station from the hot spring spa in Sounkyo in 7 min, which is located at the foot of the Daisetsuzan Mountains. (altitude 1,300 meters)
Mt. Kurodake is located in the Daisetsuzan National Park known as “roof mountains of Hokkaido” and as one of the largest national parks in Japan.
In mid-September, visitors can view the autumn leaves, which is the earliest in Japan.
The natural environment of 2000 meters mountains is the same as that of 3000 meters mountains in Honshu, which offers splendid views.
You can see the dynamic landscape from the ropeway, which features Kurodake (1,984m), Keigetsudake (1,938m), Ryoundake (2,125m), Kamikawadake (1,884m), Ishikari River and valleys among an ocean of trees.
You can feel the breath of cold air at the fifth station of Kurodake (altitude: 1,300m).
You can enjoy the splendid view of mountains of Daisetsuzan from the rooftop terrace, and visit “Daisetsuzan Kurodake Museum” which features seasons of Kurodake along the way up to lift terminal. After that, you will have lunch and rest. (You can also take a bath at the hotel as your option)
For lunch, you will have “Sansai Kinoko Gozen” which features mountain vegetables and mushrooms in season.
The mountain mushroom is rich in vitamin and mineral and yet is organic food. It has also low calories that it is good for lovely skin and fine health. This tour is perfect for seeing autumn foliage.”
