The Okutama Ropeway is located in along a Okutama lake. It is very famous to Japanese explorer. There are Mitousanguchi Station and Kawano Station left around the area! And In this area you can enjoy a nice view of the river and the surrounding mountains, so it is well known among the photographers.
Okutama Ropeway was opened 1961, was for tourists. The route linking Kawano Station and Mitousanguchi Station, the ropeway passed through flew over the Okutama lake. But it was closed due in financial difficulties.
It was a spring day! I visited the Mitousanguchi Station with my dogs, it was part of our walk 😀 abandoned station standing on the mountain slope! We little climb the mountain wall, and There was a building hidden behind the trees. That was bigger than I had thought.
In the station there isn’t graffiti despite the accessible location. It is slowly being reclaimed by nature and the environment around it. And here, cute ropeway is sleeping. I go into the with my dogs. It looks like it’s going to start moving at any moment. GO! GO! Okutama Ropeway!!
