World-class comfort

The design of the gondola has been totally overhauled to produce one of the world’s most advanced models. Comfort was a major focus of the design so that passengers hardly feel the gondola sway at all. It is also extremely quiet. A high roof and generous width make for a spacious cabin that comes complete with separate facing leather seats boasting advanced cushioning. Glass walls on all sides provide the ultimate viewing experience, making you feel like you’re taking a mid-air stroll.


When you get off the gondola, you’ll be met with a spectacular scene offering superb views of
the Uonuma Plain and the three great mountains of Echigo.
The nighttime lighting interweaves with the city lights to produce a magical scene that can be enjoyed by everyone.
