Reply To: Enjoy Yokohama’s new accessible ropeway

Rode on Yokohama Sky Cabin rope way yesterday.
There is an elevator up to the ticket booth and tactile blocks in most areas. The ticket wicket is wide enough for a wheelchair but you must open it with the QR on your ticket, so some help may be needed.
When you are ready to get in the gondola, they stop the rope way and fold up the seat in the gondola for more room (one side or both sides can be lifted up). There is practically no gap between the platform and the gondola.
There are accessible toilets at the station.
