Before or after your ride up to this popular vantage point, consider stopping at Sapporo Winter Sports Museum at the bottom of the hill, which features exhibits dedicated to the Olympics Games that took place here.

  • So well see jumping up and under view, riders really doing that much, should be a very valuable experience. When you get off is possible even on foot. Facilities provided was a great play full-swing kids. Families with children who never is recommended place.

  • I went to see the ski jump of desire. I thought should be viewed in the show-jumping, but to first-hand and slip, from here go up in the lift, fly in the sky what competition it's! Oh awesome. Worth than I had imagined Olympic Museum exhibition is fun, memories of the Olympic Games, show there is. Mao Asada exhibits not the costume Jersey was made us laugh. In the shoes of Yuzuru Hanyu is inspiring! Commemorative photo panels are clean and are fun.
