Head up Mt.Tengu for a spectacular view of the Shakotan Peninsula and Ishikari Bay. Open both day and night, the ropeway leads to the top of the 532 m (1,745 ft) mountain south of Otaru's city center. The ropeway's summit station has a small hall that houses over 700 goblin masks. (Rub the Tengu Goblin mask's nose to get your wish.) Visit the museum and ski archives, and enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants. Hike your way down through the woods afterwards, or take the ropeway back to save energy for other activities.

Easy climbing after the first climb is steep, but I am tired. Climb down in 1 hour 50 minutes
