Hakodate, famed for its fresh, delectable seafood, is the third largest city on Hokkaido island. The bustling harbor city was one of the first to welcome international trade and was once home to a thriving foreign population. See the influences of the West in Motomachi, the erstwhile residential quarters of foreign traders, and the 150-year-old Fort Goryokaku. Red brick warehouses line the waterfront, now a hub of dining, shopping, and entertainment. Nearby, the summit of Mount Hakodate offers panoramic views of the city, which is also known as the southern gateway to Hokkaido island. Accessible through an aerial ropeway, the summit region is a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of hiking and adventure opportunities. Just a half hour away, en route Sapporo, you could relax and unwind at the Onuma Park, which is famed for visuals of picturesque, island-dotted lakes.
