Take in panoramic views of Sapporo from atop Okurayama Lookout, a hilltop attraction of Olympic fame. Located below the observatory is the Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium, a sports arena built for and used in the 1972 Winter Olympics. Unless the facilities are used for competitions, visitors can access the site's observatory by using the chair lift. Before or after your ride up to this popular vantage point, consider stopping at Sapporo Winter Sports Museum at the bottom of the hill, which features exhibits dedicated to the Olympics Games that took place here. Put Okurayama Lookout on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sapporo trip planner.
