Otaru's Mt. Tengu boasts a height of 532.4 m and is a spot with spectacular night scenery called one of "Hokkaido's Top Three Night Views". On the top of the mountain there is a mountaintop observation post, which received a star in the "Michelin Green Guide · Japan”. The "Tengu nose", is known as a power spot which is said to grant a wish when you stroke its nose. Mt. Tengu is packed with sights and many things to do, not only views of the sea and mountains. The total length from the foot of the mountain to the summit is 735 m. You can ascend and descend on a 4 minute ropeway ride. You can get wide views of the ocean and on clear days you can see the Shakotan Peninsula in the distance. In winter, it is popular as a ski resort that overlooks the harbor. There is a new course with a maximum slope of 40 degrees that challenges winter sports people who visit. You can even enjoy the slopes of the main course when it is lit up in the evening. Private accommodations, a ski school, and ski rentals are also available.
