    Great simple visit from a cruise port of call
    A great simple trip if on a cruise. Leave the port, gat a taxi - advice available - and go to this great hilltop viewpoint with sights of Fuji if the weather is clear. Then catch the ropeway (cable car) DOWN to the shrine which is beautiful though has many steps. FAR, FAR better than any cruise ship tour and easily manageable in 3/4 hours. Then you'll still have time to spend in the nearby shopping centre - excellent value esp at UNIQLO!

    Access to the Shrine
    The ropeway is required to access the temple below. The staff shove as many people into the car as possible if there is a crowd. Be prepared for no view if you are loaded later. There are many stairs to board the ropeway but an elevator is available. No views are likely for people in the middle of the ropeway but you can hang onto the overhead hand straps. the ride is about 5 minutes with views of the surrounding landscape.

    Worth the effort!
    Went early on the morning, very lucky with the weather and before the tours from ships arrived. Staff very friendly but no commentary in English, all Japanese. There are a lot of steps to the temple but the end result is well worth it. Don’t forget to stop at the look out on the way back.

The ropeway is easy to take. Tickets for a round trip and access to the temple can be purchased from a machine using cash or credit card. Access to the ropeway is well marked, the time for the next two cars is marked and people are well-behaved. The ride itself offers a nice view of the mountainside and tress. At the end of the ropeway is a beautiful temple. There are LOTS of steps, though, so if you are not fairly able then you might skip that part and just return on the ropeway. We enjoyed it. I don’t know if I would take kids, though. They might enjoy scrambling over the tall steps but they might not be so interested in the temple.

After visiting Nihondaira Yume Terrace, we walked to this ropeway to catch a ride to Kunozan Toshogu Shrine. Ride required purchase of ticket. We bought the return ticket, although it is possible to go down from the temple via the stone stairs that wind down along the hill. Although the ride is just a short ride, it offered a panoramic view of the whole area as it glides across the lush forest. Since we were there in autumn, the forest were a mixture of green, yellow, red.

Recommend to have include this ride and a visit to the temple across, while you are at Nihandaira

The rope way was a quick ride to get to the shrine. Great views from the cable car of the trees below. We did not see Mt Fuji from the cable car.

The climbing of the stairs to reach it is not for the faint hearted.
You can access it via road.
It gives a great view but is relatively short.

We took the bus from Shizuoka station to get to the cable car. It’s a 40 min bus ride. It takes 5 mins to get to the shrine & view Miho beach. We didn’t go into the shrine but the cable car & view of beach is good.

When on the top of Mount Nihondaira you can continue your trip towards Kunozan Toshogu Shrine via the Nihondaira Ropeway. A very nice 15 minutes trip with beautiful and surprising views over the coastline.
Depending on the package you will take it costs between 600 Yen (one way) to the maximum of 1750 Yen (round trip and access to the shrine as well as museum). I took the full package knowing I would visit them all anyway.

This is the fastest way to go over to KUNOZAN TOSHOGU shrine located on top of KUNO mountain taking only 5 minutes between NIHONDAIRA plateau and KUNOZAN every 20 minutes. The view from the cargo is very beautiful. Although the authentic way to the shrine is from south entrance, lots of travelers can make use of the convenient transportation. The tickets for the rope way, entrance fee for the shrine and for the museum are available at the station. Credits cards are available at the station.
