A Glittering Night View: Sapporo as Seen from Okurayama Viewing Point – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

One of the most famous night views in the country, Okurayama Viewing Point, an observation deck in a ski jump stadium from the 1972 Winter Olympics, is a must-see in greater Sapporo. From a height of 307 meters, enjoy a panoramic view of Sapporo and the Ishikari Plains. If you turn towards Odori Park, the well-placed twinkling lights are well-known to look like an airport runway while Sapporo’s glimmering cityscape extends beyond. For this view and more, take the lift just after sundown to see the city lighting up the night sky. You may even encounter a skier training on the ski jump below!
