Mount Norikura, located along the southern edge of the Northern Japan Alps, reaches to 3,026 meters above sea level and is the site of the Norikura Skline, a grand expressway that offers extraordinary views of the surrounding natural beauty! From the endpoint of the Skyline, Tatamidaira, to the highest peak of Kengamine is an hour and a half trek on foot, a trip well worth the effort!
From there and elsewhere, you can gaze at the wondrous mountains from a vantage point literally above the clouds! This fantastic sight is one that you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in Japan, and in particular the sunrise scenery will absolutely blow you away with its grandeur.
＊＊＊ Personal vehicles are not allowed on the Skyline so you have to take a bus or taxi from either Honoki Parking Area or Akandana Parking Area ＊＊＊
