Otaru Tenguyama is located on the northern slopes of Tenguyama, just to the west of the main city area of Otaru in the western region of Hokkaido. There are some very fine views to be enjoyed over the city and sea on a clear day.
Otaru Tenguyama is made up of a Ropeway lift, one pair lift and one single lift in the top area. The 735m Ropeway hold up to 30 people and operates throughout the year for sightseeing.
Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
