It is a fair drive, and the rope way up is a good viewing platform, but once we were on top, the fog came in and visibility became limited. Looks like it would have lots of potential on a clear day, though.

It is magic place. It takes one hour to reach Hakkoda mount by bus from Aomori JR station. Rope way leads to the top of mount. You may walk and enjoy beauty and silence on 1,5 km. I was impressed by highland nature!
