Winter Olympic Ski Jump Stadium | Sapporo

The Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium is a ski jump located in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Built in 1931 and resting on Mt. Okura, the stadium has hosted many winter sports events. Among the list, the most notable event was the 1972 Winter Olympics Ski Jump Competition. Guests can enjoy a "ski-lift" ride up to the top of the Jump stadium for an exceptional view of Sapporo, as well as enjoy some ice-cream in the cafe at the top. In addition to the Jump, there is the Okurayama Crystal house which features a shop and restaurant and a Winter Sports Museum. The total slope from the bottom to the top is 133 meters (436 ft). While originally designed for winter use, the stadium has evolved after many decades of renovations and updates. The facility now includes a Summer Hill which allows jumpers to practice even without snow.

View from the Top!

There's a ski-lift guests can use to reach the top of the ski jump. The smooth ride up and down the lift is great for photos, as well as the observation deck from the top. There are also decorative ski's meant for photos at the top of the Ski Jump hill for an excellent souvenir. Take plenty of pictures with the decoration during your Japan tour in Hokkaido, and be sure to sample the ice cream in the observation deck!
