Located in the east of Hakodate, a volcano Mt. Esan is famous for its azalea blossoms. They bloom from late May to early June, when the foot of the volcano turns crimson in a riot of the rose pink blossoms. On Sunday of late May, there is an event at Azalea Park, where local specialties are sold and there is a popular song show presented on a specially built stage. It takes about 40 minutes to get to Azalea Park from Hakodate Airport.
