Hakodate night view

Hakodate night view

One of Japan's most spectacular night time panoramas.

Take the cable car up Mount Hakodate on the southern end of the city's peninsula for the fantastic views of the city. The best time is 30 minutes after sunset as twinkling lights light up the strip of city sandwiched between the waters of the Tsugaru Straits. Popularly known as the 'million dollar view' you will soon see why.
