Mt. Moiwa, Minami

4.4
#1 of 16 in Nature in Sapporo
Marvel at sweeping views over the city from atop Mt. Moiwa, at a very accessible height of 531 m (1,742 ft) one of the area's major tourist attractions. Hop aboard the ropeway at the base of the hill and ride your way up to the observation deck, transferring to the mini cable car along the way. You'll also find that the summit includes a small theater, a planetarium, and a restaurant where you can enjoy a bite to eat or a drink while soaking in those vistas stretching all the way to the Sea of Japan. Plan trip to Sapporo with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Mount Moiwa offers great views of the Sapporo city. Went during the winter and the weather was so cold compare to other places. Only take half day/quarter day trip here.I went around 6pm and back arou...  more »
  • This is Sapporo's night spot. Is the day depending on the weather, views the Ishikari plain. Could climb in the toll road by car, but recommend aboard tram from the city centre down by ropeway before, walked a little, go to. It is all at once. Summit restaurant, guests can enjoy dinner while watching the night scene at night, but if you want to ensure the window seat reservation is required.

  • We visited the Summit, Mt.Mowa, which is the point of view of Sapporo city. Scenic area overlooking the model 360 degrees is very beautiful. But regrets that not visiting at night. Visitors to this city should not be missed.

  • This is apparently a very popular place since it was very crowded even on a chilly early spring night (April 29). The crowd was well directed in and out, and the premises well kept. My overall impression may have been better if I visited during the day and could really see the landscape.
  • Nice lookout over Sapporo. not a lot of quick food options and quite some people lining up for ringing the love bell. But we succeeded in the end. View from the ropeway is only so so - you need to be very front to get a nice view over the city.
  • Hiked up from shrine area, rewarded with great views of city in the day, and night view when sun sets. Took the rope way down, thankfully we were able to still get tickets(they guided us to pay 600 only)Warm drinks available from vending machine!
  • The view is amazing, will definitely come again. The view with the music played in the store made the whole trip so romantic. Because it's winter, we didn't stay there for long. Come during autumn would be a good time. If you plan to come multiple trips buy the annual pass it's definitely cheaper. (Annual pass 2800, single trip 1700)
  • I did a pleasant hike from the less-used trail head. There are bathrooms at the top and the entrance, as well as vending machines. The view is of downtown Sapporo, and on the other side, of some of the neighboring mountain towns. You can see various ski resorts from here.
