Mt. Hakodate

Mount Hakodate is known as Gagyusan or “Lying Cow” for its shape. Mount Hakodate offers one of the best views from its summit at 334 meters high, overlooking both sea and land. Not only is it one of the best views in Japan, it is actually in the top three in the world with Naples, Italy and Hong Kong, China. The facilities for Mt. Hakodate ropeway offer visitors a round trip and one-way option to ascend or descend the mountain, however, guests can also choose other transportation like bus or cars in order to get to their destination. If people also have the time they can hike up Mount Hakodate if they want to. Aside from the ropeway facility, guests can also take advantage of the souvenir shops located within the same vicinity as the all-weather observatory that guests can use at no charge.

The views that can be seen from Mount Hakodate include the peninsulas located south from the summit, the Tsugaru and Shimokita Peninsulas belonging to Aomori Prefecture. In addition to the peninsular views, the night time and daytime views in either direction are popular among the tourists, so tourists need only worry about the observation deck and ropeway operational times when visiting Mount Hakodate. The best time to see the night view is 30 minutes before the sunsets because you can see the landscape glitter with the setting sun. This scene is very popular with couples and there is a story called the Heart Legend. It is said that from the view of Mount Hakodate a heart is hidden in the nightscape. If you find it, then your love will come true or deepen. However, if you are unable to find it, there is a heart shaped chocolate shop at the top you can visit.
