Hakodate

Hakodate ©
A gateway to the island, Hakodate has gained a reputation for its waterfront attractions, its proximity to some of the island's most popular natural sites, and its seafood.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Mon): wander the streets of Motomachi and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Hakodate. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Onuma Quasi-National Park.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Hakodate trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Hakodate is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Hakodate. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in April: high temperatures in Hakodate hover around 13°C and lows are around 5°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to go by car to Kutchan-cho.
