We went to this mountain via public bus which cost ¥400 yen per person for one way. You need to get a map or ask your hotel how to go to this bus stop which may be a little confusing. Take the bus towards the...More
We visited this place this July , and it was kinda chilling at night. It’s recommended to bring a light jacket if it rained earlier that day.
We were lucky to see the fabulous night view as the next day was so foggy you can...More
We took the tram line and trudged our way to the cable car station only to find that it wasn't working. A first that we have encountered in Japan where public attraction does not work. Instead they operated a bus shuttle service instead and made...More
We found out the ropeway is not in service so hotel staff suggested us to take bus to Mt. Hakodate instead. In front of the Hakodate JR station, bus stop #4, we took the bus to the viewing platform of My. Hakodate. Bus cost 400...More
You can take advantage of the free shuttle service provided by the cruise ship and transfer to Hakodate JR station, and from there you can take a bus from the station to Mount Hakodate. The bus schedule is quite frequent, and the fare is 400...More
Mount Hakodate has been marketed as the outstanding evening sights over the city and bay. Therefore the crowd start to build up after dark. The waiting time during the peak season can be hour even after the great improvement with the cable car and stations....More

Hello, the road is safe, there are some triky points of alternate one way access, but I'm not sure privates can go up. I suggest to catch a bus, There are many available. Or take a taxi for more flexibility. The top of the hill as far I could see hosts buses and taxi. I didn't see private cars no much room for privates. I may be wrong anyway.
No, it doesn't open until 10 am. However, you can hike to the top on a trail/path or else take a taxi, since there's a road as well. Elevation change between the bottom and top of the ropeway is about 1,000 ft.

I agree with the other two answers to your question. We took the ropeway during the day, and at that time the parking lot next to the ropeway had plenty of spaces available. Also, when we went in early April on a weekend, there wasn't a queue or the need to wait (either on the trip upward to the top or on the return trip down the mountain). If you take the ropeway in the evening when there are more crowds, parking and then queuing may be an issue. If some in your party are a bit frail and walking/queuing are an issue, I'd suggest that you consider a daytime visit to avoid the crowds and potential parking and queuing issues. The view from the top is still lovely.
Hope you have great trip to Hakodate.
