Japan’s longest gondola lift, called “Dragondola,” is 5481 meters long and stretches between Naeba Ski Resort and the neighboring Kagura Ski Resort. Via Dragondola, visitors can reach Tashiro, Kagura, and Mitsumata ski areas. Collectively, these ski resorts are called “Mt. Naeba.”

Many events and activities take advantage of the abundant nature around the Naeba Ski Resort area. One of these is the annual “Fuji Rock Festival,” Japan’s largest open-air music event, which over 100,000 people attend every year.
