Mount Moiwa, Ropeway In Sapporo, Japan

During the first day of my visit to 

Sapporo city

in Japan, I went to the observation deck. The review about it can be found here.
When it got dark, I decided to ascend Mount Moiwa to see the admirable views from there, as the guidebook had promised.

 (the Mt. Moiwa Ropeway), and then you change to a mini-cable car.

TV Tower

and JR Tower.
