Hakodate Illumination

Hakodate Illumination Hakodate Illumination

Held from December 1st to late February, Hakodate’s picturesque streets are lit up with around 50,000 lights to create atmospheric night views only seen in the winter. The sloping Hachimanzaka and Nijukkenzaka streets are lined with trees which are lit up and glitter especially brightly when fresh snow lies on the ground. Churches, the Old Public Hall and many buildings in the Bay area are lit up too, so wrap up warm to enjoy the spectacle while strolling the streets. The illuminations can be seen daily from 5pm to 10pm.
