Mt.Tengu, Otaru

3.9
#3 of 14 in Parks in Otaru
Head up Mt.Tengu for a spectacular view of the Shakotan Peninsula and Ishikari Bay. Open both day and night, the ropeway leads to the top of the 532 m (1,745 ft) mountain south of Otaru's city center. The ropeway's summit station has a small hall that houses over 700 goblin masks. (Rub the Tengu Goblin mask's nose to get your wish.) Visit the museum and ski archives, and enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants. Hike your way down through the woods afterwards, or take the ropeway back to save energy for other activities.
