Went up Mt Moiwa in the morning (actually I flew back Hong Kong in the afternoon). I was at the foot of the hill the previous night but the shuttle stopped service at 9:15pm. Do check the time before you headed for the night view.

Went there on winter, breathtaking scenery, it's all white because of the thick layers of snow. There's a bell inside a shape of diamond, ring them thrice for luck :) ..And yummy ice cream at the cafe.

You can ride the cable car until about 10 pm, gives you a nice view of the city. 2 separate cable cars to the top, rest stop and concession 1/2 way up.

A visit will provide an excellent vista of Sapporo and getting there by tram is part of the "adventure", rug up well in the cold.

We'll be in Hokkaido towards the latter part of December (2016). I'd like to know if the ropeway is operational during that time? Can we go there using Hokkaido's train/subway transportation? What is the operating hours of Mr Moiwa Ropeway? Thank you.
