Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
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.

  • 花火も見れたし、最高!3階のカフェの営業時間が長ければもっと良かったです。12月で日没は4時半ごろでしたが、6時の花火の始まる前に多くの人が下山されるので驚きました。 The ropeway station clerk person warned me about the snowy weather for we might not have a great view of the city.....  more »
  • Great view of course. The rope way is closed. I walked, about 45 minutes from the rope way building. Trail is good and wide easy to follow. Busy even on a Tuesday. I walked up again for the sunrise...  more »
  • See after nightfall! The Japanese call it the million dollar view, see it and know why. Cable up and walk the pathway down.
  • The weather is nice and we recommend Mt. Hakodate in the morning. The bench is a corona specification. Isn't the couple dense? LOL
