Great photos. I was thinking about making a day trip from Kusatsu to there. However I think the lift issues would have me spitting the dummy and spoiling my day. Will have to day trip somewhere else instead.

Brilliant, muika.

 

Just proved how amazing the views are from up there.

 

Pity it's pretty much a rubbish skijo!

Thanks.

 

Yes I look up at those dudes hiking up and think.. :veryshocked:

 

Super Gnarly!!!

Just to be clear, I was being extremely un-gnarly, stood inside course areas.

;)

None of these hikers appear to be naked though, so obviously that's a few gnarly points taken off.

 

;)

 

Looks like you had a fine day muikabochi. Ii ne. :thumbsup:

As you can tell, some of the things about it really are irritating.

I don't do the hiking thing so for me the only reason to go here is the location and scenery, as it's just a really small place.

Perhaps they know people will go anyway for the hiking and the location, so they don't need to put any kind of effort into it.

I don't know, it's just odd.

 

Just once a year I think, on a day like today.

Oh yes one thing worth mentioning, before 19th January they open on weekdays at 8am.

I don't know why the 19th has significance but...

Also on weekends they open 7am.

Of course add the ticket window and slow gondola times on to those for a realistic starting time! ;) Though I think the gondola speeds up when they are busy.

 

Still, it is strange the late opening and I can imagine frustrating. I have always gone once it is already open so not encountered it.

I was driving to Okutone for some after work nighta and wondered if you might have been/were up at Tenjin. I guess the answer was yes! Not quite the same but I at least got to see Tanigawa before the sunset. Not as impressive but Okutone gives you an interesting angle. Beautiful set of pics as always!
