I did this a while ago but I think it was 600 yen. It was closed for the better part of a decade. It lasts 15 minutes and you get a nice views. Better to do it when it's not raining.

Views are great. The ride is long and fun enough. The seats rotated unexpectedly which broke my bag. I wish that they had told me about it beforehand, so that I could have aoivided tearing my bag. The owner partially compensated for my hardship. Good...More

DonQui is known for it's "cheap stuff" and a souvenir mecca. Unfortunately, it is not true. Yes there were items that they sell cheaper but their chocolates were expensive (for a budget conscious like me). They sell a kitkat for ¥268 wherein you can buy...More
