Winter

December-February

We have some snowy days around November. The city is white with snow in January and February. The months of December through February feature winter festivals. You can see snow falling over the illuminated buildings and roadside trees.

Climate and Clothing

It is cold outside, but the houses are warmed inside with heaters. Wearing several layers is recommended. Wearing a thick coat and waterproof boots is necessary.

Night View

The night view in the snowy season is really beautiful because of the lights against the snow-white city. The summit of Mt. Hakodate is much colder than the base, but rest assured that there is warm indoor observation space. To see the night view on the outdoor observatory, you must dress up as warmly as possible.
