“Interesting Museum and Good View”

Mt. Okura Observatory
Ranked #6 of 477 things to do in Sapporo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2014

The museum is fun if you're willing to take part. There's fun interactive games to play and then you can take the ski lift to the top of the jump. There is great soft cream at the top and it's a great photo opportunity. There's a gift shop and a restaurant at the bottom that I'd also recommend.

500 yens for a chair lift that will take you up where the observatory and the ski jumping hill are. Great panorama view over Sapporo. :)

you will have a nice view of the sapporo city at the top. we went up using the open ski lift but i think those who have time and strength can hike up to the top.
witnessed some senior citizens hike up in groups.

the lamb restaurant is really good. price is reasonable, quality and service are very good. must try for lamb lover

We visited this place during the afternoon and the temperature was quite cooling, around 12 degree celsius. The view of the ski jump up close was really cool and I never expected it to be so steep. We also took the ski lift up and got a breathtaking view of the Sapporo city from the top. Overall a nice place to visit!

This is a unique opportunity to see a ski jump up close as I had never seen one other than on TV. The lift ride to the top gives you a close up view of the jump and landing areas which are surprisingly steep. The view at the top is very good but probably would be better at night. It was quite chilly up there even in May so if you go in the winter at night, better bundle up!!
