Motomachi

Motomachi is Hakodate’s historic district, boasting a number of impressive buildings constructed over the previous centuries. One of the most significant structures in this historic district is the Old Public Hall, which displays an classic European-style architecture and was used to house the Hakodate’s government in the early 20th century. Various old religious structures are also located in this part of town, including the Higashi Honganji Temple, Russian Orthodox Church, Episcopal Chruch and Roman Catholic Church. Motomachi is also home to the Gokoku Shrine, which holds the remains of those who lost their lives in the Battle of Hakodate.

Mount Hakodate

A climb to the summit of Mount Hakodate may be a tiring experience, but the spectacular views from the top are well worth the trek, especially at night. The mountain stands at a height of 334 metres and the top can be reached by walking, car, bus or ropeway. Facilities at the peak of the mountain include observation platforms, souvenirs shops and a restaurant.

Fort Goryokaku

Goryokaku is a magnificent star shaped fort, designed in 1885 by Takeda Hisaburo to be the main fortress of the ephemeral Republic of Ezo. The fort was designed in a distinctive star shape to allow for a greater number of gun placements and a reduction in the amount of blind spots around the structure. Nowadays, the fort is a park and has been named as a special historical site.

A bustling morning market is located in several buildings along the city’s bay front, where visitors and locals can purchase a variety of seafood including the region’s renowned crabs.
