Capture the essence of Hokkaido – a province that is distinctly different from the rest of Japan – as you visit the vibrant and bustling Hakodate Morning Market. This bustling epicenter of Hokkaido commerce is comprised of roughly 280 stores and is located near the JR Hakodate Station. Enjoy some fresh seafood and lively atmosphere of the market. In addition to being a seafood lover’s paradise, the lively market also sells local produce and souvenirs.
Drive through the downtown core of Hakodate and board the aerial cableway up to the summit of Mt. Hakodate. This lovely wooded mountain rises to more than 1,200 feet at the end of the peninsula on which the city sits. Needless to say, it commands a stunning, panoramic view over Hakodate. Take a little time for quiet self-reflection, to walk around, take photos, or learn about your natural surroundings.
Finally, return to the city for a visit to the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse area, remodeled in 1988 as part of a waterfront area redevelopment with a theme of combining the old and the new. You’ll find a variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cultural spaces. It’s a charming place to explore the city’s maritime heritage while enjoying local crafts and souvenirs, savoring fresh seafood, and appreciating the picturesque waterfront views.
From the warehouse area you will return directly to the ship.
