#2 of 14 in Museums in Hakodate
A star-shaped fort protects Hakodate Bugyosho, used as a government building when Japan gave up its isolationist policy and started to open up to the world in the mid-19th century. Now a museum enclosed by maple trees, two centuries ago the structure served as a diplomatic and bureaucratic center of the shogunate. Take a guided tour and roam through the minimalist rooms, designed in the typical Japanese style. Leaflets and info boards provide useful details for English-speaking visitors.

  • In early December, severe chills in goryokaku was covered with snow. Is the throb of the moat water. Was the explanation Hakodate magistrate's Office, situated in a new building but atmosphere of bygone days. Still, the cold land visit during the colder feel quaint.

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.
