Yuzawa "Alp No Sato"

The 'Alp no Sato' (Alpine Flower Garden) is a botanical garden on the north slope of Mt. Omine reached via one of the largest ropeways in the world, the Yuzawa Kogen Ropeway, which holds a massive 166 people. After a 7 minute ascent, you are transported to the 1,300m attitude mountain peak station, with its panoramic views of the Yuzawa area. Located at the summit is the Yuzawa Kogen 'Alp No Sato' botanical park which contains over 1,000 different types of alpine plant species.
