Hakodate is an important port city in the southwestern part of Hokkaido. From the Seikan Tunnel to the south, you can reach Honshu Island's Aomori Prefecture. Hakodate is the great south gate to Hokkaido. Hakodate opened its doors to the world in 1854 and is a long-established port trading city. When you come to Hakodate, be sure to climb up to the top of Mount Hakodate to enjoy the city's glimmering nightscape. If you want a taste of exoticism, you can take a walk among Motomachi's historic buildings. For those who are looking forward to Japanese hot springs, you can go to the Yukawa Onsen to relieve the fatigue of travel. Hakodate City is also a paradise for food lovers.

E25***46A must visit if you happened to travel to Hakodate. The night view is really attractive. The best is to be able to catch sunset on the way up to Mount Hakodate and staying at Mount Hakodate for night view. Expected to be very crowded during this time.

Emily慧慧The Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse was the first international trading port in Japan to open, and now it has created a lively shopping area. Transportation: 5 minutes by tram to get off at "Shizijie" station, 5 minutes walk to arrive; Business hours: 09:30-19:00 (shop (shopping store)) How to play: Take pictures among several warehouses, just outside the warehouse The port is also beautiful when the weather is good. The warehouse has been used as the background to walk around and take pictures. Sometimes there are seabirds staying in the opposite harbour. Let’s take a picture together~ There is a super delicious cheesecake, only 200 yen per set. The cheese is very strong and soft and fufu Good ci~

吴立珍Hakodate’s Hachimanzaka pavement is paved with stones, lined with trees on both sides, and surrounded by churches and Western-style houses in Motomachi, filled with an elegant and relaxed European style. Hachimanzaka is directly connected to the sea, with beautiful scenery and unique perspective, so it often appears in TV dramas and movies.
