  • It is a building worth seeing, admission is pay. I was most impressed is the Salon. At that time opened here, ornate masquerade as imagined. Windows overlooking the beautiful port of Hakodate and is a great location. Hotel is set at the time of the photograph. Bought the memorabilia in the gift shop.

  • If you go by streetcar from suehirocho station on upgrade, is a 10-minute walk away. Appearance is a colonial-style building, hotel is the Renaissance-style design. Exterior painted in a blue and yellow may divide likes and dislikes. Affected by Typhoon No. 21 was across the Japan Islands over the weekend as usual from mid-October is fall foliage season, was worried. Hong Kong was visited 10/27 in autumn Typhoon, from Motomachi Park in front of the Auditorium back in Motomachi, Hakodate harbor views with colorful autumn leaves. I was lucky because it was opened after the Perry Admiral coming memorial monument, Motomachi Koen, Hakodate city former British Consulate in Azerbaijan visit fall heard closing for renovation, so was not that the passing. I think good and sure in advance if you plan to order from. The slope is steep and there are cobblestone, so comfortable shoes are recommended.

  • From Hakodate city, located in the town area. Big building on the original Town Park, painted in the blue and yellow looks great. The glamorous atmosphere of the Meiji era came through.

  • A gorgeous and well-kept old building! Explore the little rooms fit with the proper furniture and (for about 1000¥) you can cosplay in fashions from the era. There's a great outdoor view from the second floor. Not much else to do but take in the history - it's worth the view alone.
  • This is a grand and stately building. When I walked through this museum, I could imagine myself being a noblewoman in the early 20th century. In fact, you can even rent costumes and dress like a noble person and walk the building. The view from the balcony was very nice. I really enjoyed visiting this place.
  • We visited at night only, so I can't speak to the inside of this building. But the light up of the building itself is spectacular at night and as an added bonus, the view from here (and the adjacent Motomachi Park) is almost as good as from Hakodate Yama. If the ropeway is too crowded or the top is covered in clouds, this is a good fallback place for some of the same views of the Hakodate peninsula at night.
  • A beautiful building at Hakodate area. This is one of the largest historical building. Most beautiful without the snows.
  • Beautiful night view.

Where to stay in Hakodate

Look close to the main train station for the majority of accommodations in Hakodate. The large city offers a great deal of variety when it comes to places to stay, with the downtown area featuring everything from chain hotels, to luxury boutiques, to dormitory-style lodgings in youth hostels. A cluster of particularly well-maintained hotels and guesthouses with onsite "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) sits just to the west of Nezaki Park, with many rooms offering extensive views of the sea, or the canals that make their way inland.
