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!

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.
