How do I get to the summit of Mt. Tengu?
There are ways to get to the summit by "riding the ropeway" or "driving to the parking lot near the summit".
※ As I will say later, I think that the ropeway is good because the road to the summit is closed to traffic for winter.
Ride the Otaru Tenguyama Ropeway
If you are going by ropeway, there are several free parking lots that are located near the bus station, so this may be recommended if you are visiting for s
ightseeing. There is a ropeway ride next to the large building (Otaru Tenguyama Ski School) next to the first parking lot.
Drive to the parking lot near the summit
You can drive to the summit of Mt. Tengu, but the road is closed to traffic during the winter.
When I went, there was a signboard that I could not pass through from November 8, 2018 to April 18, 2019 at the entrance of the road toward the summit.
I think that you can climb in other seasons, but if you look at the map, the road is narrow. I think it's pitch black at night, so if you're confident in driving, you may want to climb here.
The center of the map below is the entrance of the road to the observation deck.

Parking lot of Mt. Tengu
There is also a parking lot near the summit, but since the road is narrow, it is recommended to park at the free parking lot near the ropeway stop at the foot of the mountain and climb by ropeway.
