Mt. Moiwa, Sapporo

4.3
#1 of 8 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.
