★ 下田ロープウェイ 8月1日リニューアルオープン!★ Shimoda Ropeway Renovated Open on 1st of August!★

 

伊豆急下田駅と寝姿山山頂を結ぶ下田ロープウェイが約8ヶ月の改修工事を終えオープンしました。

ゴンドラは、水戸岡鋭治氏が手掛けた伊豆観光列車「ザ・ロイヤル・エクスプレス」と同じロイヤルブルーの外観で、内装はぬくもりのある天然木を使用、懐かしくて新しいクラシックな空間。

山頂駅には観光交流施設を併設したレストラン「ザ・ロイヤルハウス」を新設。内装はやはり天然木を使用し、組木細工などの伝統工芸を取り入れ暖かい雰囲気。メニューはザ・ロイヤルエクスプレス同様、東京目白の「旬香亭」が監修、地元の食材を生かした料理と生産地や製法にこだわった飲料を提供。

ロープウェイの乗車料金は、往復1,050円、子ども520円。

山頂の展望台からは下田湾を望め、四季折々の花々が咲く散策路、日本最初の商業写真家「下田蓮杖」の記念館など見どころもいっぱいです。

【Shimoda Ropeway Renovated Open on 1st of August!】

Shimoda ropeway connecting Izukyu Shimoda Station and Mt. Nesugatayama at mountain peak has been opened after completion of approximately 8 months of renovation work.

The Gondola is the same as the Izu sightseeing train “The Royal Express” by architect Mr. Eiji Mitooka, with the same Royal Blue exterior, using a natural wood with warmth, and a nostalgic space.

A restaurant “The Royal House” with a tourist exchange facility was added at the top station. The interior also uses natural wood, and incorporates traditional crafts such as woodwork and warm atmosphere. As with the Royal Express, the menu is supervised by Tokyo Mejiro’s “Shunkoutei”, and offers dishes that make use of local ingredients, as well as beverages that focus on the production area and process. This restaurant will open from August 30th.

The fare for the ropeway for round trips is 1,030 yen for adults yen and 510 yen for children as usual. From the observation deck at the top of the mountain, you can see Shimoda Bay, and there are plenty of attractions such as a walkway with seasonal flowers and a memorial musium of Mr. Shimoda Renjou, Japan’s first commercial photographer.
