What people are saying:

The observatory on the top of Hakodate Mountain is actually a three-story building. Inside, you can drink coffee and eat some snacks. When it is too cold, you can go in for warmth. However, because there are too many people outside, you can watch it indoors. No view. It is recommended not to wait until the sun sets to go up to Mount Hakodate, because there must be no good place to take pictures at that time, you must go early, and you must go early! Looking at the sky in the skyline from the mountain, the color gradually changed from blue to orange and then to dark blue. The lights in the downtown area of Hakodate were gradually lit up, as if opening a jewelry box. , Let the whole Hakodate become bright.

    Top- rated for a reason

    The view from Mt. Hakodate joins two other cities in getting three stars from Michelin. The view is spectacular. If you want a sunset view, you must go early. The tour busses crowd in and you can wait...
