Before or after your ride up to this popular vantage point, consider stopping at Sapporo Winter Sports Museum at the bottom of the hill, which features exhibits dedicated to the Olympics Games that took place here.

  • Our tour guide suggested stopping here and it was worth the stop. You can take a gondola to the top for an excellent view of the city.  more »
  • Lift to the viewing platform is 500 yen. And the Sapporo Olympic ticket 1,000 yen and 100 yen discount. 5 min. lift to the observation deck. You can see the structure of the jump during the lift ride. I didn't know and thought up the slopes of the mountain, has made the jump, but the systems in steel. You can see the Odori Park, TV Tower in front can be great Observatory is located on the starting point of the ski-jump, as the name suggests the Sapporo City "viewing". Try walking downhill can go, without a lift to the observation deck on the promenade, so how about?.
