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.

Mount Hakodate reviews
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
