The views from the top are second to none of the Sapporo area and beyond. You can catch the local bus right to the door. Take bus #11 from Maruyama Koen, which is a stop on the Tozai line subway. It was ¥1700 each to the top. There is a stop halfway up where you change cableway. There is a... More

My trip to Mount Moiwa was a memorable one! The cable car station was easily accessible and the going up the mount via the cable car followed by the tram was an adventure in its own right. Do note that due to it altitude, the outdoor viewing platform tends to be very windy and hence cold in winter. Do note... More

We went up the Mt. Moiwa ropeway all the way up to the observatory. Really easy to get to and a fast trip. It was pretty cold though so you don't want to spend too much time out on the deck. Beautiful views at night, but I think I might've preferred to see it in the daytime.

This is the right place if you want to see the Sapporo city view. To reach the place, you need to take a street car to Ropeway Iriguchi station. From there, you can either walk to the base station or take a shuttle bus (which is running every 15 minutes). At the base station, you can purchase tickets to the... More

How to reach Mt. Moiwa observation. The best way to get Mt. Moiwa is to use city tram loop. You'll need station "ロープウエイ入口" (rōpu uei iriguchi). Price for. Tram is 170円 w/o price zones. Take a look inside a car, normally you can find there free coupons in the pockets with printing give aways for ropeway to Mt. Moiwa, that... More

Quick trip up by funicular railway. Excellent views over the city and surrounding countryside. Spectacular autumn colours in October. Good link with city tram.

Been there during Winter, the view is 'whitely+snowly' superb! It is worth a visit. You need to take a cable car to go up to the peak and this is one of the must visit attraction in Sapporo. Easily accessible by public transport too and they do have a free shuttle bus from a certain bus stand. Suitable for anybody.

I visited in late October when the Mt Moiwa Ropeway was closed. Thanks to that I could experience my visit there in complete solitude. Beautiful park covers the slopes of the mountain, and this time of the year the autumn colours were at their peak. Nice place for a relaxing stroll, not far from the downtown.
