A visit to Sapporo should include riding their streetcar, ropeway, and cablecar on your list and you can do all these when you make your way to Mt. Moiwa.

Lovelocks at the Mt. Moiwa Observation Deck!
There is a free shuttle bus to the Lower Ropeway Station every 15 minutes but we were not able to find it when we alighted from the streetcar’s Ropeway Iriguchi Station. We just walked our way 600 meters to Moiwa Sanroku Station of the Moiwayama Ropeway line. 
Googlemaps says the free shuttle bus to the Ropeway is just 70 meters from Ropeway Iriguchi Station. We only learned where it was when we were dropped off at the bus stop from a free ride from the Ropeway Station on our way back to our hostel.

It’s quite magical high up the Mt. Moiwa Observation Decks. Prepare to be amazed!
The Mt. Moiwa Observation Deck can only be reached through the ropeway so we really had no choice but to walk to the Lower Ropeway Station after alighting from the streetcar at Ropeway Iriguchi Station. It was a slightly uphill climb and a good exercise at that amidst the cold weather. 
It was a good walk since we were spoiled afterwards with good slow rides climbing up to the observation through the ropeway until we transferred to a cablecar before reaching the deck.

You can feel your adrenaline rush as the rides seemed to take too slow and long as you go higher up. You can watch our vlog for this trip to Mt. Moiwa here.
The overlooking view of the city night lights of Sapporo from 531 meters up the Mt. Moiwa Observation Deck is awesome.
