Central Alps Senjojiki Cirque


Map Home page

Also called a "kaar", the steep slopes of the Senjojiki Cirque were carved by glaciers some 20,000 years ago. The area's meadows are popular in the summer for their subalpine and alpine wildflowers, as well as in autumn for the fall colors. From the end of September through October, the cirque becomes a colorful tapestry interwoven with the red leaves of the mountain ash trees. This natural paradise is easily accessible thanks to the Komagane Ropeway, Japan's first mountain ropeway. It rises 950 meters over its 2,334 meter length in its duration of a little over 8 minutes.
