  • I went to have a Christmas tree and bronze monument in the vicinity of the hotel, so taking pictures. Inside is a souvenir shop in ordinary shops. You'd better not expect too much. But after all IRO IRO and West bought at the quayside. Closed at 6 so watch out. l

  • Brick warehouses became a fashionable shopping street in the redevelopment. Giving illumination brought from Canada at the end of a huge fir trees, are illuminated in the evening. It was seeing fireworks being launched is admirable, but Shivering in the cold.

  • Quaint bay area where you can find rejuvenated warehouses turned into shops and eateries. Should be nice after dark when the lights are lit. There's a huge Starbucks in the vincity serving as a good pit stop.
  • The Xmas campaign is hosted during December. There is firework show at 6 pm everyday. So love it.
  • Beautiful looking building. Great views and with lots of restraunts. Also has quite a few places you can have a drink.
  • Fantastic service, food, atmosphere & view upstairs. A real lifesaver for Austraian tourists looking for breakfast on a Sunday morning.
  • Love the shopping in the Red Brick Warehouse. It's very spacious inside and lots of variety of shops, restaurant. Good place to take photos. Shops will close early. make sure you visit early before the shops closes.

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.
