Hakodate Overview

Hakodate is port city on the southern tip of Hokkaido. The city is famous for its night view from the top of the local mountain and for the colonial influence that came when the port opened in 1854 to foreigners.

The city is unlike that of any other city in Japan. The colonial influence can be seen in the Motomachi Districts where churches and Victorian style buildings draw huge crowds. The warehouse district along the Hakodate Harbor is a relaxing place for a walk. Travlers can also learn about Hakodate’s history by visiting the Goryo-Kaku area.

It is easy to travel around the city. Trams run all around the city and stop at most of the major tourist destinations and taxi are also a convent (but a more expensive way) to travel around the city.

The city is a must see for anyone who is visiting Hokkaido. It has a very laid back feel to it and the city is breathtaking.
