The Hakodate Ropeway is a must-see for anyone visiting the area, as it offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding towns. A restaurant is at the top of the ropeway and has a great reputation among visitors as it offers great food and even better views. A souvenir shop is available at the base station for your shopping needs.
While the scenery is beautiful any time of the day, a trip in the evening gives you the chance to watch the light change as the sun sets over the horizon or the nearby cities light up. Because the temperature drops and the wind picks up at the cable car gets higher in elevation, you may want to bring a sweater with you on the ride.
