Mt. Okura Observatory, Sapporo-shi Reviews - Write a Review

  • This place have an amazing view and is really fun to go in the zip line, is actually not that expensive and it includes the entrance to the winter sports museum. It Cool to visit with your kids. And don't forget to drink a Sapporo Clasica on the observatory desk

  • Skii Passenger lift is exciting experience and at the top is the one great view of Sapporo, You can see odori park & TV Tower from here.

  • The view is super and it is an enjoyable experience taking the lifts up the ski slope. Would recommend to go there.

  • Amazing place. Must to see when visiting Hokkaido

  • I visited here as a part of a packaged Sapporo bus sightseeing tour. I got to see the Ski Jump World Cup here. It costed extra 300 yen to enter but I think it was worth it (as I got to see the legendary ski jumper Noriaki Kasai). I couldn't get on the chair lift to get up to the top of the hill as it was being used for the World Cup, but I'm planning to return there for this.
