Japan’s Longest Gondola, the Naeba Dragon Dora [Naeba Ski Resort 2023]
Naeba Ski Resort will offer a new greenery sightseeing operation on the Naeba Dragondola from Saturday, April 29, 2023, to Sunday, June 18, 2023.
The “Naeba Dragondola” is a gondola that boasts Japan’s longest distance of 5,481 meters, connecting Naeba Ski Resort and Kagura Ski Resort (Tashiro Area). You can enjoy an approximately 30-minute aerial view while going up and down.
From May 8, 2023, it is planned to transition the new coronavirus infection control law classification to class 5. This is expected to increase demand for enjoying travel more than ever before. Naeba Ski Resort provides a healing trip to enjoy spring, with the concept of “a healing trip to enjoy with all five senses” by conducting a gondola sightseeing operation, the longest in Japan, during the green season. You can enjoy a refreshing spring walk in the air for about 30 minutes, breathing in the refreshing air of the great outdoors.
The five senses are the five senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. In spring, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of remaining snow and new greenery, as well as the buds of beech, Japanese horse chestnut, Japanese bigleaf magnolia, and wisteria blooming along the line, and the chirping of wild birds and the murmur of rivers that feel the melting snow are pleasant. The refreshing air of the forest full of vitality will heal your mind.
Around the Naeba Dragondola base station, there is a “Naeba Boardwalk.” Around mid-April, a “skunk cabbage” colony blooms beautifully in white. In addition, you can enjoy collaboration with trees that bud daily while taking a nature walk.
We propose an aerial sightseeing trip to enjoy with all five senses on the Naeba Dragondola, which starts from the melting snow and changes from “new green” to “deep green” as a refreshing spring tourist spot.
Naeba Dragondola Operation Overview
The repeated ups and downs along the ridge are impressive, and you feel surrounded by nature when you descend.
