RESERVATION

Sea of clouds gondola tour


You can enjoy the fantastic and magnificent view from the summit of the gondola.

It takes about 15 minutes to get on the gondola. From the gondola summit station, follow the promenade to the summit of Mt.Maemori at an altitude of 1,304 m.
From the top of the mountain, you can enjoy a large panoramic view of the secondary beech forest below, Mt. Iwate, Hachimantai, Mt. Nanashigure, and Mt. Himekami, as well as sky deck and Unkai café. And sometimes you can see a fantastic sea of clouds.
Around the time the temperature rises from night to morning, the chance to see the sea of clouds is the highest. We will open the gondola earlier so that you can see the sea of clouds. It is open from spring to autumn every year.
