(1) Enjoy Night View of Hakodate

Enjoying night view is probably one of the most popular tour attractions nearly all tour spots provide to us. I mentioned before that many restaurants are introduced and listed in Michelin Guide Hokkaido; however, that is not every thing about Hakodate. People usually come up with ‘food’ and ‘dining’ when hearing the word ‘Michelin’ but Mt. Hakodate was listed on Michelin as well. Mt. Hakodate was introduced by Michelin Green Guide, which reviews and rates attractions other than restaurants. The tour attractions which were chosen by Michelin guide are usually thought to be interesting and worthy.

If weather is clear enough and you don’t have enough time to visit Mt. Hakodate during night time, it is also recommended to visit here at daytime. You can use ropeway for going up and it costs JPY 1,280 for round trip. This small city surrounded by sea will give you a lot of impressions. During daytime you will be able to enjoy cool and refreshing scenery while night view gives you a glittering scenery and romantic mood.

(2) Try Hot Spring

If you are in Japan I highly recommend trying Japanese hot springs(onsen). In summer, it is difficult to try hot spring due to hot and humid weather unless you book a private indoor hot spring where you can enjoy hot spring under air conditioner. Winter, with its freezing cold weather, is the perfect season for enjoying outdoor hot spring. You can keep your head cool in warm(or sometimes hot) water.

The most famous one which represents Hakodate is Yunokawa hot springa rea. Have you ever seen a picture that monkeys are enjoying hot springs? If not, you can check if  this is real or not with your eyes in Hakodate. Located in Yunokawa hot spring area, there is a Yunokawa Botanical Garden where you can see not only flowers and plants but also monkeys bathing in hot spring. You can enjoy foot-bath only for free.

(3) Play Winter Sports at Snow Park

Wanna enjoy winter sports? You came to Japan for skiing and snowboarding? Then you should visit some ski resorts or snow park! One of the most popular places where you can enjoy winter sports in Hakodate is Nanae Snow Park. 1 day pass costs JPY 4,800 and they also have ski equipment rental stores so you don’t have to bring heavy stuff from your country. (as long as you are fine with wearing rental items.)

Similar to other ski resorts, it is possible for you to spend all day here since there are places for having meals. The snow park opens until 10 p.m. so you can also enjoy skiing or snowboarding until night time. They also provide lessons with JPY 3,000 for half a day and JPY 5,000 for whole day so you may try it. (The lesson is given in Japanese.) There also is an option for private lesson.
