  • A good place to buy souvenirs and snacks. There are a few dessert shops here which includes Snaffles (delicious cheese and chocolate catch cakes). You can spend 1-2 hours shopping and walking around. It is also nice to take a few pictures outside the Red Brick WareHouse.
  • Nice area by the water. Old red brick warehouses turned into commercial space with lots of little shops inside. A bit of a tourist trap, but good place for getting souvenirs. There are some ATMs & foreign exchange machines in the buildings as well
  • While the place as historical, the buildings are converted into a spot for shopping and dining in the city. As a tourist, you may spend hours in buying souvenirs, having local food around the area, and not to mention to enjoy the great habour view.
  • Very cute area with lots of small souvenir shops, cafe and food related stalls. The place looks very European style
  • 1.3 km walking distance from Hakodate Station. Beautifull brickhouse 😍
