Sapporo from the top of Mount Moiwa

 MG 8266

A ropeway then a furnicular railway takes you to the top of Mount Moiwa and a great view over Sapporo. We came here in early evening so we could watch the sun set and then see the sparkling lights of the city. Well the clouds put a stop to some of that but it was still a good experience.

And here is the ‘backside’ view….. I spent quite some time watching the clouds washing of the mountains in the far distance.

And then I watched as the sunset and the crescent moon and Venus appeared in the night sky.
