Q: Could you tell us about your first stop in Hokkaido and how the adventure has begun?​

A: Once, we headed towards our first destination – Okurayama. When it comes to city view, there is nowhere other than Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium from the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympics, the most lofty sightseeing spot in the city. It is a twenty-minute drive from downtown and ten to fifteen minutes by bus from the Subway station. Once reaching our destination, we arrived at the top of the hill (300 meters via a chair lift and the panoramic view from the lounge was spectacular! Below your eyes, there is an approach of the Large Hill ski jump platform. Beyond that, you can also see downtown Sapporo, the Odori Park, the premises of Hokkaido University and the JR Tower at the Sapporo station straight ahead. From here you have exactly the same view as the jumpers and you will have a taste of the jumper’s tension and experience what they experience.
