“Million Dollar View”

Click to enlarge

This is a photo I took of what is known as the 百万ドル夜景 (Hyaku-man Doru Yakei) or “Million Dollar nightview” in Hakodate, Japan.
I’m not sure what exactly the criteria are for a nightviews, but apparently it is considered one of the most beautiful in the world…or at least in Japan.
While the view was nice, I’d say the gondola ride up to the top of Mount Hakodate, passing over the city, was enough to make the trip worth it.
