The best way to access the ropeway is by tram. Once there it is totally user friendly and to reach the top the use a cable car initially and then you transfer to a rail car. Views of Sapporo are wonderful

Great views of the city day or night. Well worth the time and cost. Easy to get to by subway and tram. The ropeway (or gondola ride) is enjoyable and there's a restaurant there with great views.

This is one of the three most beautiful night views in Japan and it is well worth waiting for cable cars to climb to the top. The view is truly magnificent. It gets crowded from the dusk to the closing hour so make enough time to get down. Cable cars are extremely silent.

You should be able to find a coupon or two for Moiwa Ropeway somewhere. (We got a coupon book for free at the exit of the Chitose airport, with a discount coupon for Moiwa Ropeway (1,700 to 1,500 JPY round trip.)) There is a hillside station where you change ropeways. Anyway, the night view of Sapporo from the mountain top... More

You can try booking with chuo bus night tour. A bit warm at night in summer. Nice souvenir shop and very crowded with students. Not entirely wowed. Night view is just okay with shimmering lights.

Nothing too interesting, just a cable car which transports you from the bottom of the mountain to the top. You need to change cars which is a bit of a bummer.

It was mid April and the temperature was low. We got there on a sunny day and had a good ride on the ropeway. The girls working at the station were very charming and even helped us taking our photos!

One of the must see in Sapporo. Never ever miss the night view from Mount Moiwa. Take the tramp to Ropeway Iriguchi Station and then can access from Ropeway entrance from there
