The nightscape of Sapporo is recognized as one of the top three most beautiful nightscapes in Japan next to Nagasaki and Kobe, by 4500 persons who passed the nightscape critic exam, at the Nightscape Summit hosted by the Nightscape Tourism Convention Bureau. Although Mt. Moiwa is a popular sightseeing site known for being one of the top three night scapes which is located near downtown Sapporo, it is not accessible without changing transportation. The bus shuttles between the hotels of downtown and Mt. Moiwa ropeway and picks passengers up between 18:00～18:20, it is reasonable for tourists and businessmen. Mt. Moiwa was reopened in Dec, 2011, with state of the art Gondolas. From the large windows, you can see a splendid view of primary forest and Sapporo City. From the two-story ropeway station mid slope which was newly built, transfer to the Morris Car, or browse the gift shop with a great lineup of Hokkaido souvenirs. The Morris car (cable car) connects the halfway point and summit of Mt. Moiwa. Two coaches make round-trips every 70 seconds, while passengers experience the rush of racing through the forest. The summit has also been renovated with a 360 degree panorama view of Sapporo city.
