    Old red-brick warehouses is somehow an exotic impression. Down the city churches and Mt. Hakodate are within walking distance, so a stroll around.

    Have fun and pretty much? Good weather but little เสีบ die photo because heavy rains hurt? The atmosphere is similar to an Asian khaban us.

    Speaking of Hakodate Bay area first here, saying the original shuttle from the city area. Square of fairly large parking lot next to the warehouses. In the shop and works with discount. However, limited shopping in kanemori red brick warehouse. The warehouse was about 4?? In souvenir shops and restaurants, similar to the Yokohama red brick warehouse. I thought a little bit more history can be felt as a spectacle to symbolize the Hakodate, toward China as the place for groups and families shopping and photo shoot location had become. Certainly representative of Hakodate, famous and Lloyd's of London, the white lover, such as Hokkaido, souvenirs were sold. Coffee shop with an easy said warehouse here came after seeking a bit of souvenirs, but somewhere in there that explains it. Will have to check next time. As soon as you had to leave, not in in plenty of time to hang out with, and to wander around alone father.

    These cool old warehouses were turned into a shopping centre. It's a good place to look around for a couple of hours. There are a good varieties of shops.

    Great shopping. Loads of stuff to see and buy. You can also enjoy the scenery around the area. Alot of slopes along the streets though

    Nowhere comparable to the Fisherman's wharf. It's like the warehouses in Kaohsiung harbor, just a few redbrick structures turned into gift shops. Nothing interesting at all. An okay place to hang out in the rain though.

    There are some cute shops here. You can definitely spend some time looking at trinkets, clothes, and furniture here. Grab some food and then go outside and hang out. It's not too far from a train station and it's right by the ocean. There was an ice skating rink outside (I went in January). It's a very beautiful place.

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.
