Hakodate

3.5

City of Lights

A gateway to the island, Hakodate has gained a reputation for its waterfront attractions, its proximity to some of the island's most popular natural sites, and its seafood. During the period of Japan's isolation from international trade and affairs, Hakodate became the first city to open its port to foreign investment and migration, the effects of which you can still see in some of the architecture, religious buildings, and cuisine of the city. With good connections to settlements and national parks further north, visits to Hakodate usually serve as the starting point for a wider exploration.
