Hakodate:Overview & History

Hokkaido's first international trading port. The influx of foreign culture has left behind old churches and western-style buildings that make for great scenery on walks. The nightscapes at Mt. Hakodate Observation Deck and cherry blossom trees at Goryokaku Park make for great destinations. For culinary treats, try the fresh seafood rice bowls at Hakodate Morning Market, Hakodate's famous squid dishes, or shio ramen. There's also shopping to enjoy around the bay area's red-brick warehouses.
