One hundred and eight meters high, the Sumaura Ropeway in Sumaura Park gives you incredible views of, well, pretty much everything there is to see in the region: Koba, Osaka Asaki, and the Great Naruto Bridge. You can also check out the amusement arcade and the amusement park, as well as catch one of the world’s only ‘carlators’ back down. Entry to the park is free, but the Ropeway itself starts at ¥0 one-way for adults and about half that for kids.
