1.Welcome

Sapporo, with a population of 1.9 million people, is the largest city in the northern regions.
Okurayama features views from the city of Sapporo all the way to the far horizon, and is renowned for its ski jump stadium that was used at the Winter Olympics held in Sapporo in 1972. The area currently includes modern facilities that make it possible to perform ski jumps during the summer and at night, and is also the location of many international competitions.

Visitors can take the ski lift to the peak, where there is a viewing lounge at an elevation of 300 meters that provides panoramic views of the city of Sapporo, the Ishikari Plain, and Ishikari Bay.
Also, another appealing point is that on the way up to the summit, the start line of the ski jump is visible at a side glance. You will feel as if you have stepped into a ski jumper's shoes as you gaze down at the steep approach of the ski jump from top to bottom.

Here, you can reach the top of the ski jump riding the same lifts that are used during competitions. The riding time for the lift is 5 minutes one-way, and staff are there to assist so first-timers need not be concerned. The whole of Sapporo City can be gazed upon from the viewing point, famous locations can be seen such as the main street Odoori and the TV Tower.

3.Recommended points

<Double Lif>

A five-minute ride on the ski lift brings you to the top of the mountain, during which time you can catch a glimpse of what it's like to be a ski jumper.
The viewing lounge at the far top of the mountain comes steadily closer, and the steeply sloping approach stretches out along one side. Seeing the takeoff point at such a close distance will surely give you a taste of what it's like to ski jump, as well as what it feels like to be an athlete.
Looking back once you have reached the top of the lift, you can enjoy panoramic views of the city of Sapporo.
This refreshing experience will probably make you wish that the climb would last forever!
