Mount Moiwa ("Moiwayama" in Japanese) is located
about 7 km south-southwest of central Sapporo.
It is 531 meters high.
It is covered with deep forest, and rich nature remains although it is
close to the big city.
The view on the top is very wonderful, so it is one of the popular observatory in Sapporo.
You can go up to mountain with the ropeway.
(From April 2010 to the autumn in 2011, the renovation work is undergone. So you cannot use this ropeway.)
The observatory on the top is located about 0.3 km west of the station of the ropeway.
So shuttle bus is operared.
In winter, snowmobile is operated instead of bus.
On the top, there is a observatory with restaurant and souvenir shop.
Additionary, there is a toll road for car from south of the mountain to the top, but it is closed in winter.
