What people are saying:

A must visit if you happened to travel to Hakodate. The night view is really attractive. The best is to be able to catch sunset on the way up to Mount Hakodate and staying at Mount Hakodate for night view. Expected to be very crowded during this time.

    Nice view, check the weather

    I went in the evening. I managed to get the view before the clouds came in. Once it got cloudy you can’t see anything and it’s just not worth it. At the rope way terminal or on the website you can che...

    夜景が綺麗は当たり前なんですが、ロープウェイ乗ってる時も景色が見えるので、乗る場所もいいところをとったほうがいいかもですね! It is natural that the night view is beautiful, but you can see the scenery when you are on the ropeway, so it may be better to take a g...

    Great views

    Take the ropeway up to Mt Hakodate to enjoy some breathtaking views of the city. If you have time to spare, you could plan your trip up there towards the late afternoon before the sun sets for a day...

Mount Hakodate is located in downtown Hakodate. Visitors can take a cable car to the observation deck at the top of the mountain, which is considered the best place to view the Hakodate nightscape and Tsugaru Strait. It is a must-see attraction for visitors to Hakodate. Although small in size, the city of Hakodate at night resembles a scattering of shimmering jewels.

The observation deck also encompasses a restaurant and gift shop, and visitors can enjoy the spectacular night views while dining in the restaurant.
