  • Around here are a lot of stylish buildings hooked on color. I have a lot of scenes reminiscent of civilization and enlightenment.

  • The European-style building. Front facing sea because there is less time and so cannot be visited (charges apply). Travelling by bus that ran around the city by train station take about 4 20 min. Parking in front our building EP-

  • The old public Auditorium of Hakodate is one of the buildings in the area that were affected by a huge fire at the beginning of the 20th century and that we visited to walk through this historic district of the city. Can't I make comments about the interior of the building because we don't visit it due to lack of time, but if I can comment the impression that gave me the contemplation of the outer construction. It caught my attention the symmetry of the whole, the colors of the facade and beautiful balconies of the building. The entrance is spectacular and the gardens surrounding the building overlook the whole harmony. The visit of this attraction is essential in Hakodate because it is one of the most important historic buildings in the city and have to see it even if it is only on the outside. Greetings to all travelers.

  • 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.
  • A beautiful building at Hakodate area. This is one of the largest historical building. Most beautiful without the snows.
  • A nice historic building. You have to pay for entrance fee.
  • Excellent, wearing costumes, good experience. However, the reception staff is horrible and felt bad last time we went 4:30, 4:20. Certainly "Wow!, now I'm-" that I often over takes. But you know we return 4:45 the last deadline is five. Time was tight. I.e. are you guys time with paid work in translation. Here are pay and enjoy the clean, well-bad response. Does not change regardless of the size of the pants. Reply not bad the first match, said Bon voyage not!, of lack of motivation. Is not what work experience for junior high school student who is better? Agerenai more than one star is good laughs as well as such in a Spartan, but is is right, at least I as a job.

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.
