Motomachi, Hakodate
(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 元町係一個充滿歐式歷史建築既地方 對教堂冇興趣都值得黎散下步 欣賞下呢到既建築物 黎呢到散步可以感受下呢到既歷史同寧靜 好舒服! 
  • Church Street is a foreign emotion-packed!. They lit up the night, whitewashed Church looks even more beautiful. I could walk alone, in couples stroll, try watch buildings and gardens might be good. Also on the Church as you up the Hill, so in the winter snow watch?...

  • Is a great place on the slope though there are various buildings, to explore. Will be lit up at night, so time was at different times.
