    A great way to see Sapporo from above. The cable car ride is very much enjoy by the children. Up in the top, it is very cold even with jacket on

    花火も見れたし、最高!3階のカフェの営業時間が長ければもっと良かったです。12月で日没は4時半ごろでしたが、6時の花火の始まる前に多くの人が下山されるので驚きました。

    The ropeway station clerk person warned me about the snowy weather for we might not have a great view of the city from above.
    Yet I already had spent 4 days in December Hakodate, I learned that if I stayed long enough, I would get a clear moment even on a snowing evening.

    And it was fantastic to see the wonderful night city view. In addition, I was able to enjoy 6 pm fireworks at the bay as well from the lookout station.
    I wish the third-floor cafe was open late, though.

    Quick and frequent direct buses to and from Otaru station can take you to this really gorgeous view - be sure to view it by day and by night. Options for ziplining and hot air ballooning as well. Cool Tengu shrine and display (if you're into Tengu)...kind of lame ski museum and overpriced restaurant. Still, a must-see in Otaru on a clear day/night.

    Hit or miss on the weather because it changes fast being that close to the Pacific Ocean. Great views of Lake Shikotsu as well. Interesting hiking an active volcano. Lots of signs warning you of the fumes if the wind changes direction and what to do. Well maintained trail with many steps at the beginning. Trail starts to become less steep as you reach the crater and even levels off in some places. You can smell, see and hear the vents pushing out the white smoke. Very beautiful once inside the crater like a different world. Well worth the hike, this was my second time and the weather was perfect. No bugs in September but I could see it being very buggy in Summer.

    Japan has many lovely and picturesque mountains and volcanoes and it takes a mountain to stand out. Dubbed as the Mt. Fuji of Hokkaido, nestled in Niseko stands this perfectly cone shaped mountain which is more lovely and beautiful in the winter famously called Mt. Yotei or Ezo (former name of Hokkaido) Fuji. At our base in Yamada, Niseko behind our hotel (Myecolodge) stands this glorious mountain in the Shikotsu-Tōya National Park area. It is still an active stratovolcano and one of the famous mountains in Japan. Standing at 1898 m hiking/climbing is available all throughout the year. For us we just marvelled at our unparallel view of the mountain from the back of our hotel we took tons of beautiful photos and videos for us to cherish for our lifetime. From Grand Hirafu Ski resort we took some magnificent shots from the ski resort and on the cable car ride on the way through it. The mountain is also viewable from the Hirafu Gondola and when you turn left just outside Hirafu Village. Of course it must be a sunny day and not cloudy in order to view this mountain which is our luck that day. So there's a saying you can climb Mt. Fuji more than once and this is the 2nd time the ever beautiful, romantic, picturesque and maginificent Mt. Yotei.

    Came during winter and grateful for the good weather as it allowed us to do some snow trekking and the view from the top is surreal. Remember to rent the trekking equipment from the visitor centre below the mountain. However, beware the weather on top can change pretty fast. Check the weather before coming. If not, the view from the ropeway up is very beautiful as well.

    We took the ropeway and chairlift to get to the 7th station. Didn’t do the hike up the summit but did the walk at the 7th station . It was an easy walk and we managed to get a nice clear view of mt kurodake. Was very lucky to see early autumn foliage ! The view was breathtaking and the chairlift up was fun too. Would love to try the hike to the summit one day. Note that toilets are not available at 7th station, do take a toilet break at the 5th station which you will arrive at after taking the ropeway.

    Teine Snow Resort is ok, very nice to skiing there, but there is no slider there, I’m so disappointed because can’t play with my 10 months baby.
    There is nursing area and they have big rest area/ canteen. Provide locker, ski lesson, ski store & ski rental.
    Heading there from sapporo station-Teine station, and 15min by taxi (approx ¥1500).
    We went back by bus to Teine Station, there is no taxi available, should booked a few hour before.
    The bus is available every 30min and the line is so long at that time, with freezing cold outside, there is no other choice than wait.

    On the drive over the top of the Shiretoko Highway Mt Rausu dominates the beautiful views up into the Shiretoko National Park. The best views, and the safest for the driver, are from the observatory area at the top of the pass. My understanding from asking in the local visitor information centres is that it can be accessed on foot but only with appropriate experience and equipment. This far north the weather can quickly turn dangerous at any time of year and of course it is an area where the largest predator is not man but the local brown bear population which can present great danger.

    The sulphur smell is very strong but very interesting. Parking 500 yen and they have a gift shop. Also a fun hiking trail close by with very informative signage along the way. Your parking ticket also gets you into another location and they can give you directions on how to get there.

    Allthough we did only short part of the path, the way up is amazing (and long, and narrow). We were lucky enough to be acompanied by a fox. This itself was worth the long and hard drive up

    A very beautiful hike with some interesting stops along the way. Took me nine and one half hours total, five hours up with rest stops and picture taking. 30 minutes at the top eating lunch and four hours down less rest stops but more picture taking. Many people hiking on the north side trail that I was told was the easiest hike. I like it because of the Kanro Spring Water you can stock up on before starting your hike. The weather was clear, sunny and cool when I started but got cloudy and windy by the time I reached the top. Seems volcanoes have a way of creating their own weather. I would like to do this hike again in the winter.
