Hakodate Tours

Hakodate is a city and port in the Oshima Sub prefecture and is the third largest city in Hokkaido.

Hakodate is the third largest city in Hokkaido. The 1858 Treaty of Amity and Commerce that was signed with the United States designated Hakodate as one of the five ports completely open to foreign trade. The cultural influences of other countries can be seen in the Motomachi area of the city. Many foreigners took up residency in that specific area and built various structures reflecting their own culture. In Hakodate, Goryokaku Fort is a star shaped fortress that was built to defend against foreign threats and aggressions that were growing back in the mid- 1850s. One of the final battles of the Boshin war took place at the Goryokaku Fort where the rebels occupied the area. In the Battle of Hakodate in 1869, Enomoto Takeaki surrendered the city and fort while their military leader, Hijikata Toshizo of the Shinsengumi, was slain during the fight.

Mount Hakodate (函館山, Hakodate Yama) is known as Gagyusan or “Lying Cow” for its shape. The night view from Mount Hakodate is one of the top tourist spots people go to and is the symbol of the city. It is also a popular spot for couples to visit and enjoy the view together. Not only is it one of the best views in Japan, it is actually in the top three in the world with Naples, Italy and Hong Kong, China. Since Hakodate is a port town there is a place called the morning market where you can buy a plethora of fresh seafood and other delectable items. The market has over 450 shops and its hours of operations are 5am (6am in the winter) to 12pm. In one of the indoor areas customers are permitted to fish for live squid in a tub and have freshly made sashimi from them afterwards. They also have fruits and vegetables that they sell, as well. One of the famed fruits to eat especially when it is in season is the Yubari Melon.
