Mt. Okura Ski Jump Stadium (大倉山ジャンプ競技場)
I finally made a visit to check out the Ski Stadium in Sapporo. It’s located on Mt. Okura which is west of Sapporo Station. From Maruyama Koen Station you can take a short 12 min bus ride, get off at the Okurayama Kyogijo Iriguchi stop, from there it’s a 8 min walk to the stadium.
Luckily, on the ay I visited it was very quiet…I think it was because most people were at Maruyama Park having a picnic / bbq, since it was golden week and I think there was an event going on too. Plus it was golden week.
You can get a return ropeway ticket for 500 yen per adult. And of course I had to go up, I wanted to check the view! I did see many elderly couples hiking up instead. But, I like rope ways, it’s fun! The view is beautiful and refreshing, come in winter and it’s all covered in white!
