    Visit whenever I go to Sapporo favorite spot. You could see jump in front of this encounter ready Takanashi, Sara, top players practice. It is a sight to see. Steep slope lift, so for those who like especially afraid of falling? Length between parking lot and jump-not escalator well I kinda scary lol lookout overlooking Sapporo City ready, good views. Lift is a spectacular, reasonably priced adults 500 yen, children 300 yen (round trip).
