As part of our Hakodate trip, we just drop in at this shopping warehouse to have a browse. The usual offerings of fashions, clothes, gift items and many more. But there was one store that caught my attention, it’s the samurai or ninja shop with quite a varied display of items though not as expensive as those in bigger cities like Tokyo. This is a shopping area based on several old warehouses at the seafront. The shops sell a large variety of goods, targeted mainly at overseas tourists. If you are looking for some special souvenirs to bring home, this is the place to shop. There are a few eating outlets, and quite crowded. Unlike shops in the city centre, the place opens into late at night. There is also a pier, where visitors can take a cruise of the bay, day or night.
I was there in December closer to Christmas so the Christmas decors were up. Also great place for buying gift and getting your meals.
This is the Jinsen warehouse complex in Hakodate. It used to be an important distribution center for Hakodate Port. It is a European-style warehouse with masonry structure and is now a distinctive tourist attraction. Before the warehouse and warehouse, they were separated by a small canal, but there was a bridge. Inside the warehouse are a variety of shops and restaurants selling a wide range of blingbling merchandise. Its a good place to go, but I didnt spend much time here when I thought about the trips and the various boutiques in Otaru. It seems a bit regretful now, because I feel that it feels better to go shopping than Xiaoyan.
Going straight along the road, looking back at the scenery, it is like a fairy tale world. The atmosphere of Christmas is very strong, and the wall is full of Santa Claus.
