It would be a good suggestion to buy the 1 day Otaru bus and the return cable car ticket for 1480JPY at the Otaru bus terminal. Mt. Tengu is a good place to take photos and also get a overview of Otaru city.

I came here in March when it was still snowing. The view was just simply breath taking. You definitely have to make this place a must visit when you are in Otaru.

At the main train station, there is a bus terminal in the front where you can purchase a bus ticket and Mt Tengu ski lift at a discount. Catch the bus there at the station. It's about 15 mins up.
