Hakodate Old Town, a small town surrounded by the sea at the foot of Mt. Hakodate, flourished as a city even before cars became a common means of transportation. In a location where you can feel close to nature, it is characterized by the presence of many tasteful small buildings. One of the attractions of the area is that there are many unique shops that have renovated such buildings in their own way. Enjoy meeting people and enjoying the natural scenery of this city, which is said to be the best place to live, even though you have traveled all over the world.

A DAY IN THE TOWN

how to spend a day

Take the train to the sunset

As dusk approaches, we recommend taking the tram towards the direction where the sun is setting. When you get off at the last stop, Dotsukumae, walk to the end.

Stroll through the "old and new" Hakodate Old Town

Once you've filled your stomach, head to a place the locals go to. This area is lined with shops that make good use of old and quaint buildings. Seiko Uyoku, which was renovated from a former public bathhouse, sells used clothes, books, miscellaneous goods, and more.

Take a leisurely stroll through Hakodate Park

If you want to start walking around the city in the morning, we recommend taking a walk in Hakodate Park first. It is also recommended for adults to take a walk at facilities such as amusement parks and zoos that children can enjoy together, as well as museums and historical buildings.

​ A little coffee break

If you continue to walk further, you will see a cute yellow building standing in an area where houses are increasing. We recommend taking a break with delicious coffee at FABLIKET.

Have breakfast at a popular bakery in town

Firefly bread is a popular bakery in town. It may be sold out in the morning, so hurry up. Baked sweets such as scones and muffins are also recommended. If the weather is nice, you can eat in the park or near the sea.

Lunch at Lucky Pierrot

A marina store that is just right for walking in the direction of the bay area. There are three Lucky Pierrot stores with different concepts in the old town area, but the marina store has seats where you can eat while looking out at Hakodate Bay.
