Enjoy Sapporo, one of New Three Major Night Views of Japan
In October 2015, Japan’s only organization for nightscape tourism, the YAKEI Convention & Visitors Bureau, created a poll for nightscape appraisers throughout the country, intending to revitalize nightscape tourism inside and outside of Japan. Each nightscape spot is categorized by city, with the top three cities certified as the New Three Major Night Views of Japan. Bearing in mind the recent rapid changes to nighttime tourism, the certified cities update every three years.

In 2018, Sapporo placed 2nd in those rankings.
Mt. Moiwa lies 20 minutes away by car or tram from the Sapporo Prince Hotel. The view there is also great but enjoying your meals and drinking wine on our 28th floor, while gazing at the city’s nighttime scenery is simply breathtaking.
