Hakodate: From dusk until dark

Mt. Hakodate to Motomachi

 By RS Reynolds   Jun 25, 2013

My first visit to Hakodate started with an arrival at the main train station in the late afternoon. After checking into the Hotel Route Inn Grantia Hakodate Ekimae, I decided to hit the streets and explore my immediate vicinity. The night was warm, the sky was clear and, after exploring the Motomachi Area, I climbed aboard the Mt. Hakodate Ropeway. In my two hours atop the mountain I saw the city transform from sun-drenched to nightfall. On my way back to the hotel, I walked back down towards the Russian Orthodox Church and past the Red-Brick Warehouses before retiring for the evening.

Nice pictures, I enjoyed my trip to Hakodate 5 years ago although I didn't have time to go up mount Hakodate. Nice to see the view from the top.

There is a fantastic, albeit hard to find, antique camera museum in the Motomachi district too. It is a must for anyone who is interested in photography.
