As one of the first Japanese harbor cities to be opened to international
trade after the
country's era of isolation. Hakodate has experienced notable influence
and the foreign population's former residential district and a western
style fort are among
its main tourist attractions. Please enjoy a casual stroll in the small
habor town Hakodate..
Welcome to beautiful four seasons in Hakodate！
Summer is most lively season.....fireworks, summer festiba, etc.
We enjoy outdoors before the northward summer is gone.
Welcome to Hokkaido, filled with rich natural fresh wind !
In early April.....Mt. Komagatake (Onuma) crowned with remaining snow.
May....the cherry brossoms at Hakodate Gryoukaku Park,
begin to feel the breath of spring around the town.
Winter is a so fantastic season in Hakodate. Roadside trees are
illuminated by gently lights and the powdery snow is falling steadily,
silently tonight.....delightful memories.
Autumn is quiet beautifull season for trip. Fruits and vegetables
harvest, seafoods are served on the table. Autumn leaves, the night
view from Mt.Hakodate is so good with cold and fresh air.
