  • Pretty cool jump, I bet I could've gotten some sweet air of it in my prime.

  • The place is rather empty when there is no event. The ticketing booth is at the opposite side of the entrance to the ski cable car (600yen). The staff is helpful and will standby to help you when needed to embark and disembark the ski cable. The view is awesome from the top and is definitely worth coming here. We skipped the museum because the pamphlet is not as appealing.

  • Great place, amazing view. It is a must be visited place in Sapporo. I came in summer, I can see Sapporo City from Mt. Okura’s peak. Wonderful..

  • Nice view in winter. If u plan to go to the a combo ticket and it will cheaper by 100yen + discount coupon for ice cream too.alternate location to view sapporo city.

  • It is amazing to see how high and how much courage it is necessary for the person who practice this kind of sport, beautiful view
