  • To Sapporo can come to this ski jump, sit on the ground to Lushan Public Park Station, this can take the bus to the Otsuka Mountain platform jump, the public car can be directly under the mountain platform, with only to the platform entrance, the beginning of the time to sit into the platform entrance, to the jump also walk 10 minutes, this point to pay attention to. After the jump because the sky is good, the scenery is very charming, you can first side of the exhibition, is the main topic of the introduction of winter, but to spend time, see not a person to decide, and then go to another to go to the platform of the suspension of the hanging chair ticket, and then you can go to ride the chair, because it is empty ceiling chair, by the sky, if the day rain, This trip can probably be cancelled, all the way to 10 minutes of pleasant uphill, but also can look out over sapporo city view, but the magic is three or five hours will stop, when some old people to put on the chair, they will stop the chair to let the old people go up. Up to the end of the platform, this scenery is really first-class, the city of Sapporo near the eyes, surrounded by mountains, the scenery is not icing, to the house view table can be a panoramic view, to the room but there is a glass compartment is not good to take pictures, in addition to this super-high, it is best not to eat in this west, the last in the original road sat down the mountain, very pleasant journey, very pleasant journey, If the sky is good in Sapporo, this great mountain sling chair is a place that won't disappoint.

  • If you go up to the top of the mountain observatory by lift of the jump field (round trip 500 yen), you can see Odori Park in Sapporo city directly in front of you. The surrounding swells with trees and I feel like I'm coming back to life with fresh air. I took a taxi on the day, but the bus seems to be leaving from Maruyama Park subway station.
