Take a stroll through the streets of Motomachi, a neighborhood displaying a strong Western influence in its cuisine and stores. Centering around a five-block-long shopping street, the neighborhood started to develop its cosmopolitan style during the Meiji era, when the number of foreign residents drastically increased. Shops and businesses opened to cater to the tastes of those arriving from across Europe, including German bakeries, French chocolatiers, and European-style tailors that still operate to this day. Take a look at the sweet treats and clothes on offer and choose something to take away with you. Make Motomachi a part of your Hakodate vacation plans using our Hakodate vacation builder.

  • Streetcar, enjoying the Hakodate Hakodate bus one-day tickets. Tickets can buy a hotel. Original is full of exoticism to the town. Get off at tram cross city, Hakodate St. John the Baptist Church of Hakodate of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Catholic Church. Large misaka, Yahata Hill, etc. Hakodate is a hilly city. By always walking shoes! Next to Hakodate station tram in the return bus to goryokaku. Star-shaped fortress looked at from goryokaku Tower is a sight to see. If you slurp bus at trappistine monastery. Put in a beautiful building or only at Christmas. If you just see the garden about 20 minutes is enough. Come one day ticket to use well, and enjoy the attraction of Hakodate.

  • Lined with ancient buildings, it was like back in time. I from the Bay area of the red-brick former town atmosphere is like. If old buildings are modern still shop there, hanging around was fun. Quite a walk, because walking shoes recommended. And stop the ropeway ticket if you go to bathroom, beautiful, nice!
