This tour takes you to the popular tourist spots and offers three kinds of Hokkaido’s gourmet cuisine.
Departing from Sapporo Station, you will first visit Sapporo Wholesale Market, Hokkaido’s kitchen. We will enjoy free time at the wholesale market. The outside market consists of 71 retail shops and restaurants thriving close together and selling fresh seafood and produce, which are purchased directly from Central Wholesale Market nearby, at discount prices.
The face to face communication and excitement of the market as the shop owners call out to customers, is an experience you don’t want to miss. After the visit to the Sapporo Outside Market, we head to Ramen Yokocho.
For lunch, you will next visit Sapporo Ganso-Ramen Yokocho where you can enjoy fine noodles which are one of the gourmet foods of Hokkaido. You can choose one of the shops open and enjoy a bowl of Ramen worth up to ¥900.
After we have filled up on good ramen, we will head to Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill, which is well known for the statue of “Dr. William S. Clark”. In summer, you can see Sapporo Dome looming beyond the grasslands, and the beautiful city of Sapporo. Take a photo in front of the Clark statue, which is quite big up close, or take a break and relax as you dip your feet into the foot bath.
From Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill, the bus will head for Mt. Moiwa, where we will take the ropeway halfway up the mountain, and then transfer to the new Morris Car (mini cable car). In just 70 seconds, you will be whisked through the forest to the summit. From the roof of the two-story building of the recently renovated Mt. Moiwa Summit Station, you can enjoy a commanding view of the city.
Once we descend from the mountain, we will head to Mt. Okura Ski Jump, our final destination.
At Mt. Okura, you have the option of taking the chairlift to the observation deck, where you can take in the sweeping view of downtown Sapporo. From here, we will head to Sapporo Biergarten, where you will enjoy your dinner meal. (for passengers on the 2 meal course)
Our meal here is Genghis Khan(Jingisukan) Lamb BBQ. This is the only one restaurant where you can have the freshest barbecued lamb. Enjoy the 70 min all-you-can-eat Jingisukan and satisfy your appetite. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy two kinds of Hokkaido gourmet cuisine and visit to the most popular sightseeing spots in Sapporo.
After you take the ropeway to the middle station, you will transfer to the Morris Car(mini cable car) to the summit. The cable car transports passengers through the woods and nature, and to the summit in just 70 seconds. The Summit Station on Mt. Moiwa, is a one-storey building with a basement, and recently underwent renovations. From the rooftop of the station, visitors can enjoy a 360 degree panorama view of the city. After we have finished at Mt. Moiwa, we will head to our final destination, Mt. Okura Ski Jump Stadium.
