Typical night view enjoyment spot in Sapporo authorized by "the Japanese new three big night view" in October, 2015. To the extent the night view which can look a ropeway and a MORISU car (mini cable car) around 360 deg from a mountain top observatory of the altitude 531m which takes and arrives is also called "northern jewelry box", that it shines, when I'm shining also it's fine for the daytime as well as the night view, a far place as well as Sapporo-shi district can even look Shokanbetsu chain of mountains and Ishikari bay around. It's possible to go up summertime by car in Moiwayama sightseeing motorway (charge) to the Mid station, and it's possible to enjoy about 3.5 kilometers of freeway (A winter season closes.) At the Mid station, Mt. MOIWA, there is a stand where I get a large selection of original products of the mascot character "MORISU", and a takeout section is also next to the planetarium, the casual French restaurant where you can have a meal while enjoying the scenery "THE JEWELS" and the restaurant at the mountain top station, and it's also enriched in the facilities. It's barrier free full equipment in order to have many people enjoy in the facilities again, and a guide announcement in a ropeway MORISU car stop is also doing correspondence of English, Chinese and Korean.

We were lucky as we did not have to wait very long to get up Mt Moiwa (~4.30pm on weekday) and we deliberately plan to get up the Mt before dawn. Knowing the time for sunset will help you plan your trip and you will...More

Do it properly and hike up. It's not a particularly long or hard climb (an hour up at most), and makes the views at the top even better. I went up the mountain the day after I went up the JR T38 tower. and the...More

We visited the mountain in the evening which was a very great idea. At the first the lines were long but when we reached the summit we released why this is such a big tourist attraction. The views were magnificent. Looking over Sapporo city during...More

The view is nice but it is not easily accessible if tourists do not rent a car for the trip. Even at a summer night, it is quite cool there.
