Spectacular!

Reviewed by: Liz M , 2017/11/02

It was cold during the day and I had thought of not going for this tour at night. Glad I decide to go at the last hour after bundling up in thermal wear, scarf and loaded up on lots of heat packs! The route up the mountain by bus had a nice pace. The driver switched off the lights in the bus so that we could see the dazzling lights of Hakodate city. The tour guide spoke in Japanese catering mainly to the large Japanese participants. I wish there was separate tour in English for guests like me. Thankfully I was able to understand some Japanese. With my limited Japanese I asked the guide some questions which she patiently listened and answered. The tour up at the observatory was only 30 minutes, and I wished it was longer as there was so much beauty to absorb! Recommend!

函館山

私達が行った日は風が物凄く強くロープウェイは閉鎖され、山を降りるのはバスしかなく、個人で行った人の公共のバスを待つ長蛇の列で人がゴッタ返していた。なので、このツアーを予約しておいて本当に良かった。元々往復バスだけのチケットを買ってたのでラッキー。
曇り空の日だったので、夜景が見れるか心配だったが、山頂は雲よりも上にあり、絶景をみる事に成功!実際に展望台から見る時間はちょっと短いが、ガイドさんが車中で色々歴史などを教えてくれて良かった。その時に聞いたカレーライスの老舗のお店へ翌日食べに、美味しかった!山頂へ向かう途中に写真を撮れるスポットがいくつかあるので右側の席がオススメ。

Don't Give Up!

Reviewed by: YAMA, 2016/08/25

At the time of our departure, there was some really bad weather in Hakodate, so Mount Hakodate was so foggy that we couldn't see anything. Even when we arrived at the summit, we couldn't see any of the night view. There were also a lot of people at the summit as well,so the picture spots were crowded.

But! While I was taking out my camera to take a picture, the wind started blowing and I saw the night view!!
Don't give up on this tour in bad weather. Even if you think you won't see anything, you've got to go up the mountain! The fog didn't completely disappear, but I'm glad I didn't completely give up.

If you visit Hakodate, don't miss the night view! The scenery was so beautiful and the view will leave you speechless. I would like to see the scenery again and go on this tour again.

Lastly, to everyone going to Hakodate, I recommend going to the top of the mountain even if the weather is bad!

Amazing Night Scenery

Reviewed by: Memechi, 2016/08/25

We got on the bus in front of Hakodate Station and headed straight to the summit of Mount Hakodate from there. Since I thought it would be a round-trip ropeway, I was a little bit disappointed, but along the way, in order to help us see the night scenery, the lights on the bus were turned down. Our guide was great and we had fun on the way to the summit. The scenery from the bus was beautiful and everyone commented on it, but when we got off the bus and saw the night view from the observatory, it was even more beautiful.

The day that I went was very cold but I forgot about that and felt like I could look at the scenery forever. The 30 minutes passed by so quickly. I couldn't see any of the heart-shaped lights, so that was a little unlucky. On the way back we got on the ropeway and went down the mountain. There were a lot of students on their school trips, so it took about an hour and a half before we could get on the ropeway and that was kind of tough. The line was out the door, so I wish I'd worn even warmer clothes. Since the night view was so beautiful, I still had a really nice time. The guide was so nice and attentive. If I have the chance, I'd like to take this tour again.

Beautiful night view

Reviewed by: Wanderer, 2016/02/22

In the afternoon it was rainy, so I was worried about not being able to see the view, but luckily it cleared up an hour before the tour started. This was really convenient, as I got picked up from the Bus Station in front of Hakodate Station (you check in at the counter and they give you your ticket), go taken to the bus stop, and then a guide helped us to the ropeway. We had 30 minutes to enjoy the view, which was really spectacular, then got dropped of again, all in just over an hour. Although it is run in Japanese, the guide was really sweet, making sure I understood the meeting time. Since the ropeway ticket itself is like 1300 yen, this is a total bargain.
