A gondola on the Nasu Plateau that you can enjoy all seasons with your pet
During the winter, Mount Jeans Nasu is a popular ski resort. After the end of the ski season, it becomes the Nasu Gondola, where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Nasu Mountain Range in all seasons, such as the fall foliage and early summer azaleas. There is also a dog park where you and your pet can have fun playing in the snow together.
Dash through the snowy world of Nasu
The challenging downhill slope is 2,500 meters long. There are seven slopes designed for both novice and advanced skiers, with a beginners’ slope, snow park, and moguls. There is also a kids’ area where children can play, so the whole family can enjoy the winter wonderland.
Enjoy various fun winter activities
Explore the silvery winter forest in snowshoes and on fat bikes. There are lots to see and do, like climbing up and sliding down snowy slopes and finding traces of wild animals. Both children and adults can have a great time playing in the snow to your heart’s content.
View the fall foliage from the gondola
The best time to see the fall colored leaves near the mountaintop is from early to mid-October every year. During this period, the gondola operates exclusively for foliage viewing of the crimson Nasu Plateau. Looking down on the beautiful leaves of the Nasu Plateau while riding the gondola is an unforgettable sight. The leaves of the five-leaf azaleas, which blossoms as white flowers in the spring, turn crimson in the fall. From the observatory in the mountaintop station, you can see the foliage of the magnificent Nasu Mountain Range including the active volcano Mount Chausu. You can also bring your dog to ride directly on the gondola without a cage.
