Head to the summit of Mount Hakodate to enjoy rewarding views of the city's picturesque bay. You can reach the 334 m (1096 ft) tall peak by car or bus, or attempt to hike up the steep, forested mountain. Also available is a scenic ropeway, which can take you straight to the viewpoint and remains the most popular form of transport. For a slightly different perspective, come by after dark, when the shimmering lights endow the city with a magical appearance and provide an ideal backdrop for a few nighttime shots.

  • 2月に行きましたが、とにかく中国人が多くて夜景の時間帯は展望台が大混雑。まさかこんなに混んでいるとは…唖然。 In winter season, many Chinese tourists come to the mountain and almost all the people on the top of mountain were Chinese.  more »
  • Even if you don't expect the famously was, the higher the altitude the ropeway ride star just Huck and admiration, but came out even as the Christmas season added to the illusion of light and frustrated even more glitter than when the sun goes down and completely by the time really was the death at sunset

  • Mount Hakodate offers one of the best 3 night scenes in the world. The view is simply spectacular during sunset through twilight. However, expect huge crowd during that period, and be sure to get the best spot you could; or else you may not get to see much.
  • Excellent views from the top of the mountain. You can walk up here via the path, or pay 1260 Yen for a round trip on the Ropeway. We visited during the winter and the top of the mountain can get fairly cold when the wind is blowing. They have a restaurant and tea cafe that our group didn’t visit, as well as a gift shop.
