I'm not overly keen on views, but my wife pulled me here and it was worth it. Fantastic view and great atmosphere! Its a little pricey and we had to queue for a bit for the tram down. Still, a nice romantic stop.

Great view of Sapporo. We gladly paid to use the ropeway and the rail car to go to the top of the mountain. The star projection in the little movie theater at the top of the mountain is not really interesting for people who don't...More
