Things to do in Hokkaido, Japan: Okurayama Viewing Point

Konichiwa! This micro blog will somehow give you the idea of what Okurayama Viewing Point can offer! I’m so excited to share what this amazing place holds. To begin with, Okurayama Viewing point also known as Okurayama Jump stadium is located at the  North side of the beautiful country Japan. Everything there is mesmerizing. To be specific, you’ll find this wonderful place at Sapporo!

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 (www.sapporo-dc.co.jp)

Things to do in Hokkaido, Japan: Okurayama Viewing Point

1.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. And luckily we were able to experience that. Hey! i swear to God for those of you who are recently planning to settle down and put a ring on that love of your life, this place is perfect for that! I mean the view is dramatically captivating! spectacular scenery I promise!

2. Double Lift

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!

Here's a sneak peak of the view we had during the ride. <3
