 Others You would enjoy nice flight having magnificent view of downtown of Kitakyushu City looking down below and Genkainada Sea in front. Scenery from the top via live camera can be seen on a page of website of Sarakurayama Cablecar. The cable car would not be operated time to time and you'd need to check out in advanceon on its website when you plan to visit to fly. Top landing is noral here and it is not difficult to take off even for biginners because the takeoff has wide and large space. Main landing is located on the flat top of hill but is surrounded by trees and demands precise landing hitting pinpoint. Cross country flight is not allowed. You may check out flyable area on the map posted at Sanroku Station of the cable car. You are requested to check in on the note placed at the station.
