Took a bus number 9 from Otaru bus terminal outside Otaru train station to the Tenguyama Ropeway (cable car); it's the last station, no need to worry about where to stop okay! The fare is 220 yen one way. And another 1,020 yen (after discount) for a return trip to the top of Tenguyama (Mount Tengu) using the ropeway. You... More

I got to Otaru in the morning and almost have visited all the stores by 3 pm. Therefore, I took a bus from the bus station just nearby the railway station to the mountain. Only a restaurant up there with few other spots on the mountain. I decided to wait for the sunset on the mountain. Actually, the beautiful night... More

We happened to go there on 29 Aug after our Cape Kamui tour where there is a firework display. So there was a package at 1100 yen which include 2 way bus ride from Otaru station and a returned ropeway fare. There was also festive stalls selling food but there is actually a restaurant on the hilltop. The view is... More

It is close to Otaru central district. Around 10min drive to there. It is one of the 3 major night view locations in Hokkaido. The mountain top is assessed through cable car. There is squirrel feeding and downhill kart activities there.

It's a short bus ride from Otaru JR Station. Besides the view there's a squirrel enclosure and short tracks. Estimate a 2 to 3 hours tour around the place. You can then take the return bus and walk around the Otaru river area.

It was snowing. The tram car ride up was nice. The view of the city was great. It's actually a ski hill so many local kids were having school outings. There is a restaurant there and a cafeteria. 2 hours with relaxation should be enough unless skiing

The views of Aomori were excellent, the Rodeway was good, but the chipmunk enclosure was the best! Facilities look a little rundown, but I could see its potential come winter!

The trip up via the gondola was exciting for a first timer, but sadly, the mist clouded out the view that many would consider marvelous. Nonetheless, it was worth it once you're up. It's a tranquil stroll through the greens and the air's really fresh (something that's rare where I lived.)
