Hakodate City, Japan, sits like an hour glass between Hakodate Bay on the left and Tsugaru Strait on the right. The city flows out from Mt. Hakodate on a Spring evening.

The third most populated city on the Japanese Island of Hokkaido, Hakodate served as one of the original ports open in the late 1850s to international trade.

This photo views Hakodate City from the summit of Mt. Hokadate, 334 meters—more or less 1095 feet—above sea level. This is one of the most popular views in all of Japan.
