Not sure why this mountain is not popular among locals and tourists. It has one of the best views in Hokkaido. I've visited Mt. Moiwa, Mt. Hakodate, Mt. Usuzan and it is easily one of the top 2 views in Hokkaido mixed city landscape and...More

Fantastic views and friendly, helpful staff. A must visit area when in Otaru. Easily reached by taking bus from Otaru Bus Station. Spend some time at observation points along the many treks available.

It’s a few minutes drive from our hotel. Nice view and cooling. We didn’t do the hike though. Couldn’t see any chipmunks in the park. So you might just want to forgo buying the combo package. Nice place for photo taking. Very peaceful and quite...More

It would be a good suggestion to buy the 1 day Otaru bus and the return cable car ticket for 1480JPY at the Otaru bus terminal. Mt. Tengu is a good place to take photos and also get a overview of Otaru city.

Sorry not that sure as this place is for Ski during winter period. Anyway, you still can pay a visit.

At the main train station, there is a bus terminal in the front where you can purchase a bus ticket and Mt Tengu ski lift at a discount. Catch the bus there at the station. It's about 15 mins up.
