  • Highly recommended place to visit in Hokkaido. Managed to experience snow on the mountain and attended a music concert here.

  • Fantastic views,in my opinion it is better than Hokodate .

  • We had a great time riding this ropeway, which is actually a cable car, up to the top of the mountain. There's a great view of the city of Sapporo from the top. There's also a restaurant and a small café. We really enjoyed our day. It was very professional and safe. There's also a 3-D movie at the top that you can watch.

  • Mt Moiwa is a must when in Sapporo.

  • Conveniently located and accessible via tram and there are shuttle provided. It is also feasible to walk uphill towards the foot of Mt. Moiwa Ropeway entrance. Entrance fee can be purchased to go up using the ropeway and then walk up to the peak or purchase ticket to go by cable. I saw a few locals using hiking equipment, going up and down the mountain. Bird-watching enthusiast should bring their binoculars as there are a few worthwhile feathered friends to watch. The magnificent view was worth every cent and the experience is priceless. The breeze at the top was very strong and I the whole city view was mesmerizing.
