When we visited Mt.Moiwa, it was slightly snowy. The floor of ticket counter, there was a board that tells you the condition of top of the mountain. Unfortunately, it says "unclear view". However, we decided to take a risk. We paid 1,700 yen for return tickets. The rope-way was smooth and comfortable. We could see Sapporo night view. There is... More

The ropeway and cable car experience up MT Moiwa was unforgettable for our 2 boys. Be there just before 4 pm to catch both daylight, sunset and the amazing night views of the city.

Very easy to reach by taking the streetcar from susukino to the ropeway stop. Then turn right to go to the bus stop where the free shuttle bus will take you to mt moiwa station. On a good clear day, the best time to visit is about an hour before sun down so that you can enjoy the view of... More

Free shuttle every 30 minutes to the main entrance. Otherwise 15 minutes walk uphill. ¥1,600 return ticket for cable car to the mountain top. There is a souvenir shop, vending machine, restaurant and a kiosk.

Worth a visit to view Sapporo from top. The only dissapoint aspect is the cabel car. They put as many people posibble in the cabel car. Saw 1 old lady fall from the cabel car.

The location offers a good view of the city. Either during the day where you see all of sapporo or in the evening when the city lights are on. you pay for the ticket (inclusive of the cable car rides) to go to the top. A good place to spend an hour.

Went to mount Moiwa is really worth the trip. Our family enjoyed the cool weather of Sapporo. Highly recommended for family traveling together. Getting to the area is easy, take the street car either at Odori or Susukino then drop off at the ropeway station then there is a free shuttle going to the base station. Dont forget to get... More

This is my second time to Sapporo but my first to Mt Moiwa. Breathtaking views!! It's also very easy to access from Susukino. Definitely worth the visit!

I have been to mount Moiwa for few times, either solo or recommend to my friends. The scene on the observatory of Mount Moiwa is amazing in every season. You will see green during summer, yellow/red during summer, or white landscape during winter. However, the most important is the night view, it is just amazing.

Took a tram and alighted at the ropeway stop. There is a shuttle bus nearby just behind one of the tram stop. The intervals are about 15 mins between each trip. View from the top of the mountain is beautiful . You can see the city and the mountains in the background. There is also a restaurant , a cafe... More
