Hakkoda consists of a series of 1,300 – 1585 meter (4,265 - 5200 ft) high mountains, extending from Aomori city to Lake Towada. Hakkoda Ropeway (cable car) goes to 1,324 meter (4,343 ft) high Tamoyachi Peak in 10 minutes. The round trip fare for the ropeway is 1,850 yen. It takes about one hour by JR bus from JR Aomori or Shin Aomori Staton to Hakkoda Ropeway bus stop. If the weather permits and the ropeway is operational, you can have a panoramic view of Hakkoda mountain range, Aomori City, Mutsu Bay, and Mt. Iwaki, or even Hokkaido Island. From the Tamoyachi Peak ropeway station, you can also take either 30 minutes walk or 60 minutes walk in the Tamoyachi marshland. The ropeway operates every 20 minutes.
