On Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays from September 1 to December 24, 2006, you can take the ropeway up Mt. Tsukuba and walk around to enjoy the night view. You can see the lights of Tsukuba and Tsuchiura, and if the night is very clear, you may be able to see as far as Tokyo, Saitama, and Chiba. Stardust Cruising is available from 5pm to 9pm and the ropeway trip leaves every 20 minutes. It costs 1000 yen for adults and children of elementary school age and under are free. The first 30 people to ride every day are given a present. Meet at the Tsutsujigaoka parking area (where Tsukuba Skyline finishes).
The ropeway will not operate in bad weather conditions.
The astronomy club at Mt. Tsukuba will provide an astronomical telescope and explain the fall constellations.
