Overview and features of “SORA terrace”

SORA terrace is located in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, and is a paradise above the clouds at an altitude of 1,770m.

The most common way to get here is by using the 166-person ropeway, one of the largest in the world.

This ropeway is a rare opportunity to see Mt. Madarao and Mt. Myoko while reaching the top of the mountain with a spectacular view.

Sora terrace is usually open from spring to autumn, and we recommend visiting during that season.

Sea of clouds – a fantastic natural phenomenon

One of SORA terrace’s most famous attractions is the sea of clouds.

A sea of clouds is a fantastic landscape provided by nature, and if the conditions are right, it will spread out.

During the summer season, the probability of a sea of clouds occurring is extremely high, over 80%.

The moment the sea of clouds spreads out, it gives you the feeling of floating on a sea of air.

The view from SORA terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful view of the sea of clouds spreading across the valley.

Sunset – Show of colors in the sky

In the evening, SORA terrace offers a different charm.

You can enjoy the moment when the sun sets at your same line of sight. The moment when the sunset and the sea of clouds come together creates a truly magical space.

The sky is colored in various beautiful shades, leaving a deep impression on visitors.
