  • Be prepared for the cold and the long queue. A breath taking view of the town. A must see if you are in the area 
  • It was crowded at 10 years Buri climbed Mt. Hakodate, there cannot be. There were a lot of foreign travel in Asia. Ride the aerial tramway to wait for 20-30 minutes. Too busy to watch at night, climbing, be sacrificed but finally I could take photos. Winter in the Sun at such discounted discounted Goku was beautiful! It is one of the best night view in the world. I think people who go to winter cold than I went in December, but a firm warm is better.
