Mt. Moiwa

Mt. Moiwa, Sapporo: Address, Mt. Moiwa Reviews: 4.5/5

About
Typical night view enjoyment spot in Sapporo authorized by "the Japanese new three big night view" in October, 2015. To the extent the night view which can look a ropeway and a MORISU car (mini cable car) around 360 deg from a mountain top observatory of the altitude 531m which takes and arrives is also called "northern jewelry box", that it shines, when I'm shining also it's fine for the daytime as well as the night view, a far place as well as Sapporo-shi district can even look Shokanbetsu chain of mountains and Ishikari bay around. It's possible to go up summertime by car in Moiwayama sightseeing motorway (charge) to the Mid station, and it's possible to enjoy about 3.5 kilometers of freeway (A winter season closes.) At the Mid station, Mt. MOIWA, there is a stand where I get a large selection of original products of the mascot character "MORISU", and a takeout section is also next to the planetarium, the casual French restaurant where you can have a meal while enjoying the scenery "THE JEWELS" and the restaurant at the mountain top station, and it's also enriched in the facilities. It's barrier free full equipment in order to have many people enjoy in the facilities again, and a guide announcement in a ropeway MORISU car stop is also doing correspondence of English, Chinese and Korean.

Beautiful and fun
Sep. 2021 • Family
Mount Moiwa is a great family activity in Sapporo. The ropeway and cable car up to the summit of the mountain takes about 10 minutes and, at the time of writing, cost ¥1,800 for adults and ¥900 for children (round trip). The views are beautiful, especially at night.

Great view of Sapporo.
Dec. 2020
Very nice observatory to appreciate the vast cityscape of Sapporo.
Highly recommended to check the weather forecast to find out the sunset times during your trip, and go up around 20 to 30 minutes before sunset, so you can enjoy both the day view and night view on the same trip.

Awesome view
Oct. 2020
Great view, of course. The ropeway is a bit too pricey. 1800y round trip. If you want a view that's maybe not quite as good but cheaper go to the Okurayama ski jump .

Great excursion to the summit of Mt. Moiwa!
Jan. 2020
Great excursion involving various forms of transportation to get to the summit of Mt. Moiwa (531m). First you need to take the subway to Susukino subway station (Station N08 on the Namboku Subway Line), then interchange with the Sapporo Streetcar (tram) at street level (Streetcar stop SC23). Take the tram to Ropeway Iriguchi (Streetcar stop SC10); 11-stops anticlockwise or 13-stops in a clockwise direction. Close by the Ropeway tram stop, there is a bus stop with turning circle for the Ropeway shuttle bus; a green 4WD, hi-wheelbase minibus, which takes 5-mins to negotiate the climb up the hill to the Moiwa Base Station.
The 1st leg from Base Station to Mid Station is by Ropeway; the gondola can accommodate up to 66 passengers for the 5-min journey and gondolas depart every 15-mins. At Mid Station you transfer to the Mo-risu Cars which transport you to the Summit Station in 2-mins. The Mo-risu consist of a pair of mini cable cars in tandem; each can hold 30 passengers (60 in total) and also depart every 15-mins.
When I travelled on a January Monday morning, traffic was surprisingly light and blessed with good visibility the views of snow-covered Sapporo from the summit were spectacular. Great excursion, enjoyed the transportation and a special shout-out to Mt. Moiwa Ropeway for giving a discount to Senior Citizens like myself!

Lovely View of Sapporo
Feb. 2020
The view from the top was beautiful. Playing in the snow was fun. It was really fun to watch a family from Malaysia playing in the snow for their first time! We enjoyed talking to people from around the world.

Weather and views were fabulous
Oct. 2019
Visited with family

Pros
1) There was a free shuttle from the tram station. As usual, the shuttle driver was helpful especially we had a baby in tow.
2) Went there right after breakfast, which was just right for a family with baby. But it would have been more perfect night time with the city lights view.
3) Weather was nice. Coming from a tropical country, the almost winter weather was nice and cooling.
4) They had several snack shops and a restaurant, so food is not really a problem.
5) Some of my family members opted to hike going up Mt. Moiwa but most of us took the cable car which had amazing views. Mt Moiwa is perfect for hikers!
6) The place was picturesque.
7) There is also a souvenir shop, toilet is not a problem.

If you love outdoors and nice views this place is for you! Very recommended!

Stunning views of mountains and city
Nov. 2019
As the cable car ascends, you are able to notice the wide area of the city. Once you have reached the top, you can take plentiful pictures of mountains on one side and the city on the other. Great way to enjoy the views. The main center piece in the middle is great for selfies too. Overall, a great place to be, without a doubt.

See the view and the Bell of Love
Oct. 2019
Mount Moiwa is a highlight of Sapporo's nightlife. You get a great nightscape over the city of Sapporo; the sunset is spectacular. A spcial feature for photographers is the Bell of Love, which is supposed to confer a special blessing on newlyweds. To get to Mount Moiwa from the city , take the tram and then the shuttle bus to the base of the ropeway, which goes about two-thirds of the way to the summit. You will then take the distinctive cable car to the summit. At the top, there's a restaurant and observation deck, plus the Bell of Love. We enjoyed the ascent of Mount Moiwa, it can get chilly at the summit.
