Course introduction

Explore the SECRET fortresses at Mt. Hakodate


The only way to find them is on FOOT!


The Fortresses on Mt. Hakodate are very unique and photogenic places! Scattered across the mountain are the ruins of old war defenses. Building started in 1895 and the structures consist of 6 batteries, both large and small. It’s known as a secret place, since there isn’t much signage on the mountain directing people where to go. 


It is a 3 hour hike, but don’t worry, it’s not a strenuous hike. No special gear is required. Along the way there are amazing views across the city as well as many opportunities to enjoy seasonal flowers and birds. 


Mt. Hakodate is famous for wonderful night view, but it has more to offer!
