Take a scenic ride up the Gozaisho Ropeway for a commanding panoramic view of Ise Bay. If you are lucky, you might even spot a wild Japanese serow, which is designated as one of Japan’s special natural treasures. Taking a stroll on a paved walkway at Summit Park, you can experience the magnificent views from an elevation of 1,200m (3,937ft), without any climbing gear. Taking a commemorative photo across the prefectural border between Mie and Shiga is a must-do when visiting the summit.
