Abandoned Aerial Tramway

I found this rusty old aerial tramway station along the side of a small farm road high in the mountains of central Japan. The tram was likely once used by farmers to access green tea field located on the opposite side of the rugged gorge. The tram includes two cars which may have been used to haul the tea harvest as well as equipment and possibly even the farmers themselves. The drop to the canyon floor was quite high and I could imagine the ride across the gorge would have been an exhilarating thrill!
