Wonderful city! Nice to see a picture of "Japan today" for a change (not Tokyo)

Looks like more than 50,000 lights - all the more reason to show the picture.

Agree with @Thunderbird: nice to see 'Japan' rather than 'Tokyo'.

Hakodate is a Japanese treasure, and more people need to experience the natural beauty and the wonderful people there.

My favorite city in Japan! The slopes down to the water remind me of San Francisco. Anyone visiting Hokkaido should certainly consider visiting this city.

Throughout the year some where in Japan you find festivals going on. Is this unique to Japan?
