Hakodate Illumination

Hakodate illumination
December 1st , 2016 - February 28th , 2017
With the exotic streets colored with illumination of about 50,000 lights, you can take full pleasure of a dreamy night view only seen in winter in Hakodate. The trees planted in Motomachi Park and on such sloping streets as Hachimanzaka and Nijukkenzaka are outlined with lights. They appear to glitter more brightly on a day when fresh snow piled up on the ground. The trees are lit from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Be sure to wear warm clothes to stroll along the streets when going to see the lit-up churches, Old Public Hall and Bay area.
