Very great view on Sapporo. We went here around six o’clock when the sun was setting. You see the sky getting darker and the city lights getting brighter. Breathtaking view on the city and a not to miss experience.

This ropeway is very nice. Only minutes away from downtown Sapporo. Easily reachable by tram (streetcar) and a free shuttle bus.
