April 22nd, 2017

Mt. Tenguyama (天狗山) is a ski resort with about 533 m in height and is located in the southwest of Otaru city. There is a ropeway station with a roof top observatory on the mountainside, and visitors can look over Otaru city and Gulf of Ishikari (石狩湾). A night view from Mt. Tenguyama is especially famous and is one of three major night views with Mt. Hakodateyama (函館山) and Mt. Moiwayama (藻岩山) in Hokkaido. It takes about 4 minutes from the foot of the mountain to the mountainside by the ropeway. There is a restraunt at the ropeway station, so the visitors can enjoy dishes and the view. In a summer, tourists can visit the mountaintop by their cars. But a mountain road is difference with the road to the ski resort.
