This night view in Sapporo was selected as one of the “three big night views” in October, 2015. This night view overlooks the ropeway and a MORISU car (mini cable car). It has a 360 degree view from the mountain top observatory at an altitude of 531m. It is called the “northern jewelry box”, as it shines like a diamond. You can come here during the daytime as well as at night. From the top you can see places like the Sapporo city district, the Shokanbetsu chain of mountains and Ishikari bay. It’s possible to drive up to the midway station in summertime by car (Moiwayama sightseeing motorway) but it costs money at the Mid station. In winter, it is closed. At the Mid station, there is a gift shop where you can get a large selection of original products of the mascot character “MORISU”, and there is also a takeout section next to a planetarium. There is also a casual French restaurant where you can have a meal while enjoying the scenery named “THE JEWELS”. The restaurant is at the top station. It’s a barrier free building, full of equipment in order to allow many people to enjoy the facilities. There are guide announcements at the ropeway MORISU car stop in English, Chinese and Korean.

Hiking Course Time: About a 2 hour round trip (Jikei Course)
