Maya Ropeway links Nijino Eki (the midway of the mountain) and Hoshino Eki, the top of Mt. Maya. The travel lasts only 5 minutes, but while you are in a gondola, you can enjoy a magnificent view of Hanshin areas.

The ropeway trip was ordinary, but once you reached the top you can have a great view of the city. Recommended to visit at night for the city view, unless you want to continue trekking at Mt. Maya.

More scenic than Nunobiki, it's a fun way to get to and from Mt. Maya (with the Maya Cable car that gets you up to Rainbow station). Max 25 riders and runs every 20 minutes (like the cable car). Enjoy!
