Description

One of Japan’s 3 great night views featuring light and shadow.
Christian churches, Western-style architecture, red-brick warehouses… Hakodate's city streets retain traces of European influence. Yet the city has a different “face” at night. In fact, the Hakodate nightscape viewed from Hakodate-yama (Mount Hakodate) is so stunning that it has been honoured as one of Japan’s three great sites for night views, receiving the highest rating of three stars in the Michelin Green Guide for Japan. Just as the Hakodate city lights illuminate life along the edge of the bay, the exquisite contrast of light and dark defines the Hakodate nightscape.

What we will do

Please note: the order of the itinerary may vary. The bus ride to Hirosaki takes around 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on local traffic conditions. Space is limited, therefore we strongly suggest that you book early. Due to the travel season in Japan, heavy traffic jams are expected. There is nowhere to exchange money at the port; having Japanese yen in advance is strongly recommended. A clear view of the landscape is subject to weather conditions. Wear flat, comfortable walking shoes.
