Mount Hakodate, Hakodate

(4.3/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.
