A huge 1960s vessel turned into a floating museum, Hakodate Seikan Renrakusen Memorial Museum Mashumaru tells an interesting story of the development of transport in Japan. Feel the navigation console and learn about the development of the Japanese railway system in the large ferry, owned by the Japanese Railways and commissioned to transport trains, cars, and passengers between Hokkaido and Honshu. Operated until 1988, the vessel-turned-museum is now moored in Hakodate port, which also offers plenty of interesting industrial scenery to explore. The museum offers little information in English.

  • Japanese national railways Seikan ferry began in 1908 (0/1908) for the transport capacity by full-scale of Hokkaido reclamation. And active in the passenger and freight transport as the main artery between Honshu and Hokkaido, we ship at the end in 1988 (0/1988). In less than 5 minutes ' walk from Hakodate station and Hakodate morning fair, and saved moored in the port of Hakodate, has become the Hall of Fame now. (Admission 500 yen, the onboard guide book on) beautiful Sheen in the clear blue sky is only visited the time adjustments, so just look at the blue and white hull. Noticeable hull rust here and there, eventually might be destined to become the Hulk would want in there may be a bit longer and keep the shape of the current, memorable.

  • Bullet train now runs up to Hokkaido, but what was I completely forgot. Seikan tunnel is the good luck of the AO ferry though.

  • Student around the Japan Sea from Kyoto to Aomori and switched to the AO ferry sleeper train 'hakucho' memories from a very fondly remembered. Outbound yotei Maru return trip was "Mashu-Maru" and to remember. About nostalgia for those days I was moved to come, still remain in the original was. Of course, JR now, not in the Japanese national railways age, JNR character was being left behind. Regret that it could not reach because they have left asbestos to the Strait of Ramen Eating in the basement floor, I guess.

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.
