With only a week or so left in my Japan trip, I set out to finally make the trip to the northern island of Hokkaido. In all of the times I have been to Japan, I never actually made it out there. So, I decided to go all the way to the northernmost tip of the country using my JR Rail Pass.

First up, I left Saitama and headed to Omiya Station, where I would take the Hayabusa train on the Tohoku Hokkaido Shinkansen bullet train to the first Japanese city opened to trade called Hakodate. But first I had to take the train, which passed through Morioka, the city where I did a homestay in high school. Then, the train went through the Seikan Tunnel, which is a 20 plus mile tunnel that goes under the Tsugaru Strait.

Upon arriving in Shin Hakodate Hokuto Station, I took another train to Hakodate Station, where I could get off and walk to Mt. Hakodate, a small mountain that has a ropeway up where you can see an amazing view of the city. The city was covered in snow and was like a whole different season compared to Tokyo, it actually felt like winter.

I walked through the city and eventually made my way onto the ropeway...

Continuing my journey to the northernmost point of Japan, I headed up the ropeway to Mt. Hakodate. It was a short ride up, and it was freezing cold. From the top, I could see Hakodate Bay and the city of Hakodate sprawled out. I could also see the main island of Japan, Honshu in the distance and could get a visceral sense of how far underwater we traveled in the bullet train under the Tsugaru Strait.

I ended up not staying for the night view, even though it was supposed to be amazing because I was tired and cold, and still had to make it to the train to get to Sapporo by nighttime, where my hostel was located. So I headed down and explored the city.

There was a district filled with old churches, and I saw lots of them, it was very interesting. I also learned that Hakodate was the first city opened to trade in Japan after admiral Perry arrived in the country.

Afterwards, I walked back to Hakodate Station where I took another train to Shin Hakodate Hokuto Station, and then finally took a train 3 hours north to Sapporo, where I would be staying for the night.
