Overview

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.

Use the circular city tram to get there. If you are romantic couple buy the padlock at midway station (or bring your own) to put on the roof thingy shown in the picture.

Very simple attraction with very friendly staff. You get a nice view of the city and there is a restaurant to dine at if you want. Do it if you are bored.

Well worth a visit - Mt Moiwa is easy accessible via streetcar then courtesy shuttle bus to the lower Ropeway (Cablecar) station. Spectacular views over Sapporo.

Sunset worthy spot, but however, after sunset hours, the cable car to go down will take 1-2 hours. There is a total of 2 cabins and limited pax going up and down. Be prepared to wait.
