Mt. Kinka Ropeway

Mt. Kinka Ropeway takes you from Gifu Park to the top of Mt. Kinka in 3 minutes.
During the ride, you can enjoy the dynamic primeval forests covering Mt. Kinka, the beautiful stream of Nagara River, and the cityscape of Gifu.

Located on the top of the mountain are a shop and a viewing restaurant, as well as the Squirrel Village where you can play with squirrels.

For a limited period in summer, the ropeway runs until nighttime for panorama night viewers.
