SpotMount Hakodate

After dining, get on the tram and go to Juji-gai Station. A 10-minute walk takes you to Sanroku (foot of the mountain) Station of Mount Hakodate Ropeway. For a panoramic view of the town surrounded on three sides by the sea, head to the top of Mount Hakodate ? 334 meters above sea level. Taking just three minutes to reach the summit by cablecar (an amazing 125 people can fit in each car), the views of the fan-shaped city are beautiful and especially so at night. This nighttime view is said to be one of the Three Famous Nighttime Views in the world, along with those of Naples in Italy and Hong Kong, and is considered a highlight of Hakodate sightseeing. For those wanting to take in the nightview, take the cablecar up between 30 minutes and two hours after sunset. After 10 pm, the illuminated displays in the town below are turned off and the town darkens.
