  • You'll see that worth looking up boils down to this place if you want to view giant Sapporo in the North to lift fee 500 yen

  • No matches, the climb up to jump on lift 500 yen. See the jump from almost underneath the runway the greatness of jumping. In addition, Sapporo city views (even at night), is just good sense of distance. Views from too far away from moiwa personally close to 2,000 yen in the cable out, climb it, is by far the most preferable okurayama. Access is not in the car and a little harsh but can walk about 20 minutes from bus stop. Tools of the Japan national team and also many photos exhibited in the corner. Fresh green scenery is breathtaking!

  • Very few people have been to the site of the ski jumping isn't? A refreshing summer and more easy to visit. More from the top is the best. Odori Park are visible. Night spots, so take it in the evening.
