History Museum Museum
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.

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.

  • In a few minutes walk from Hakodate station to a Seikan ferry mashumaru.
