Saturday was a beautiful clear day with occasional clouds rolling through, and a cool breeze to keep things comfortable. Perfect day, then, for a ride on Naeba’s own Dragondola, the world’s longest gondola lift line. The ride takes about 15 minutes, covering 5.5 kilometers. You’ll pass over beautiful valleys and mountain streams, and catch views of the festival site, as well as deep blue lakes. It will take you to the Daydreaming stage, a great place to catch a lively DJ set, or just have a refreshing stroll in the high-mountain air. Tickets are 1500yen round trip and can be purchased near the Red Marquee tent.
