Do you know where is Hakodate? Well, Hakodate is located in the northern of Japan, precisely on Hokkaido island. I never thought before that could have came to this island even though it is far from my country. One reason I came to this island is that I want to see the atmosphere of Hakodate night. Especially night view from the top of Hakodate mountain.
As I told you before, the best part from this city is The view from the top of mount that is in the southern end of town. Well, Hakodate Mountain (函館 山, Hakodateyama) Is the mountain with the height of 334 meters above sea level. This wooded mountain attract for everyone to comes here, including me. During the day and night of a sunny day, can be seen a sight here. And, the night view of Hakodate own mountain included among three best night views in Japan.
A little bit information for you, there are three ways to hike mount Hakodate. First, you can use ropeway, the other you can hike by bus or your own car. Pretty easy right? At that time I use ropeway to get to the top of Hakodateyama. A little bit expensive, but that was because I don’t know that actually I can go with a bus. I already paid 1160 yen for return ropeway ticket. So, I can’t change my plan. In fact if went here by bus, it would be more efficient. I just need to pay 400 yen for a round trip. *sigh*
Anyway, enjoy the view of Hakodate city from Hakodateyama :)
