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.

  • I heard from the local people that even though it was a spot in Hakodate, we couldn't see the spectacular view when the gas was applied. The weather was good on the day, and we were able to burn the lights scattered around the city. By car near 11 pm. The ropeway walk at the time of autumn leaves seems to be interesting, too!

  • The weather was nice and beautiful! Why do adults look more inspiring than they did when they were students? It's a tourist destination that Hokkaido is proud of! What is the night view?

  • 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.
