  • Superb view. Must go when you are in Hokkaido! standing above the clouds is just breath taking. But be sure to prep yourself, and wake up early to catch the sunrise! 
  • Watch the clouds visit in August. August and Yes though high altitude for a thick parka and windbreaker are required. Feet wet, foggy, Skate sneakers, such as favorable. Sea of clouds was beautiful good luck and breath-taking. Like to come.

  • Operates a shuttle bus from the hotel was 4: 10 departure occurs after 3:00 out of the rain, and pretty it was raining it is not I think Summit's snow in a scheduled bus, rode a gondola. Because the Summit is slightly covered with snow was cleared soon saw a beautiful sunrise. Gave pause for is the sea of clouds, the snow closed was a route to the Summit, and was to see the beautiful Sunrise, so is satisfied. Because mountaintop route that even walking route unkai terrace around a little, enjoyed, and. Go gondola started shortly after departure and 1 hour before sunrise, sunrise over the dark gondola started roam, so after 30 minutes place think riding is just better. There is also no as it looks because even though the gondola. Think if the fees, this is coming a little higher, but weather surveys and view Café and bakery, it's would not have given advance preparations, such as ginger.

  • Absolutely amazing view!!! We were very lucky to see it, because the unkai doesn't happened everyday. The forecast were 40% chance of happening, so we were worried. But the moment u in the lift cargo and saw the clouds beyond ur foot...omg!! Unfortunately u need to get up early to see this stunning view...especially best when the sun just come out. Otherwise it could be a bit too bright to see with ur eyes.camera still does great job to record the view through. We throught it would be cold up there, they provide free winter jacket for rent, but once the sun come out it actually gets very warm, especially u will go climb up some steps to get different angles. U will be given a free postcard when purchasing the lift ticket, and its free to post world wide. Also there is a cafe on moutain top in case u need anything.
  • Unkai or no unkai depend on your luck. It will be waste of your time and money to go up Unkai Terrace if there's no Unkai. There is a notice board telling you if there's unkai for that day however considering you have wokeup 4:00am and traveling 45 min just to get there (assuming you are not staying at the resort). Chances are you will still go up Unkai Terrace no matter what. And that my friend, is the biggest mistake I made. Without unkai, there's basically nothing worth your while up there. The view, the coffee, the snack is just touristy below average. Not worth the expensive entrance fee to be honest.
  • amazing view in the world. But don't forget wear sunglasses, the sunshine will kill ur eyes.
  • Beautiful!
  • Awesome!
