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.

  • Go at night, it is very romantic and beautiful. They maintain the building well ... we love the western influence in all the architecture. 
  • 離金森倉庫不遠, 到逛完金森倉庫可以直接就走上元町, 有各式各樣歐風的歷史建築物, 還有許多不同的教堂, 走在這邊好像走在國外一樣, 蠻有趣的 
  • Odd-shaped, and the Western-style building, was fun. Walked from the red brick warehouse. Faintly illuminated in the evening and it was clean.
