Okurayama Viewing Point
An Observation Deck Unlike Any Other; the Night View Beyond the Ski Jump
Baron Kishichiro Okura, the founder of Hotel Okura, donated this ski jump stadium to Sapporo city. From the observation deck located at the starting point of the ski jump at an elevation of 307 meters, a great panoramic view of Sapporo and the Ishikari Plain is spread out beyond the approach (runway).
Point to Note!
The flickering lights of Odori Park seem almost like the runway for an aircraft. This characteristic night view is one of the renowned night views in Japan.
