The Mt. Hakodate Ropeway in Hokkaido travels from the foot of Mount Hakodate to the peak (altitude 334 m or 1095 feet) in approximately three minutes. The spacious gondolas hold up to 125 passengers, and departs every ten minutes. On a clear day, the view from the ride includes everything from the Hakodate Port and the city streets of Hakodate to Tsugaru Straight and the Shimokita Peninsula. The night view from the peak is said to be even better, often considered one of the top three in the world next to Naples and Hong Kong. Although spectacular on it's own, the beauty of the view is enhanced during the winter bay area's Christmas Illumination, the summer Hakodate Port Festival fireworks, and other events that provide a stunning backdrop for the city. The view is so well-renowned, it's often touted as the ”million-dollar night view” by the locals. Regardless of the season, the view from the top of Mt. Hakodate Ropeway is a must for your travel bucket list. Enjoy this destination on one of our fully-guided Hokkaido Japan Tour Packages available in the Summer, Fall, and Winter seasons!
