How about spending Christmas after December is approaching? Many people are thinking about that.
It ’s a boring Christmas that you can do in the same neighborhood this year. Why don’t you just go out for a while because it is an event once a year?
Here are some wonderful Christmas events.
Hakodate Christmas Fantasy
Hakodate Christmas Fantasy will be held from Saturday, November 30th. On the sea of Hakodate Port, a large Christmas tree of about 20m in height is colored with illuminations that change color over time, and its shine is like a starry sky. The venue where the illuminations shine, the red brick warehouses, the pure white snow, and the clear night sky that envelops them create a fantastic world as if you were in a dream. Every day around 18:00, the fireworks display with the lighting of the tree. There are also many special events organized around the weekend.
November 30 (Sat)-December 25 (Wed) 2019
Tree illumination lighting time: 16: 30-17: 45, 18: 00-22: 00 * Lighting from 18:00 on November 30
There is also a Premium Red Tree that appears 3 times a day, 15 minutes each, so I want to see it without missing. Premium red tree lighting time: 18: 30-18: 45, 19: 30-19: 45, 20: 30-20: 45

Haneda Airport-Hakodate Airport-Trappistine Monastery-Mount Hakodate Ropeway-Hakodate Mountain Night View Award-Hakodate Christmas Fantasy-Sightseeing in Hakodate City
Trappistine Monastery * The first female monastery in Japan. A 30-minute to 1-hour walk around the monastery is a good idea.
Hakodate Ropeway * Ropeway will take about 3 minutes to reach the summit. Appreciation of the night view of Mount Hakodate It is said that it is one of the three biggest night views in Japan.
Hakodate Fantasy * The city of Hakodate is colored with about 20,000 light bulbs.
Christmas once a year. And I want to have a wonderful last event this year. If you are a family with small children or you want to avoid Christmas crowds, you can change the date a little because you are doing from November 30th to December 25th. On Christmas day, you can spend a different time slowly.
By the way, during this period, the hotel will soon be fully booked, so we recommend that you book early. Booking.com is a great choice for booking hotels in Hakodate. I am relieved because the price is reasonable and the payment can be made locally.
