Barrier-free Access

In winter, there is snow on the outdoor walkway (passageway) to Biwako Terrace, so there are places where it is uneven and there are places where it becomes slippery.
In case of bad weather, you will be guided through the indoor passageway, so you may need to use stairs (dozens of steps). We kindly ask for your understanding.
Barrier-free access to Dining Lake View adjacent to Ropeway Summit Station.
For parking lot, our parking attendant will guide you to the parking area near Ropeway Base Station. Please note there may be snow cover in the parking lot.
