#2 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hokkaido
Take a stroll through the streets of Motomachi, a neighborhood displaying a strong Western influence in its cuisine and stores. Centering around a five-block-long shopping street, the neighborhood started to develop its cosmopolitan style during the Meiji era, when the number of foreign residents drastically increased. Shops and businesses opened to cater to the tastes of those arriving from across Europe, including German bakeries, French chocolatiers, and European-style tailors that still operate to this day. Take a look at the sweet treats and clothes on offer and choose something to take away with you.

  • Like Kobe, it's a trendy area in hakodate, a hilly town, and there are many cafes and historical buildings, so it's fun to forget the time. I want to revisit it.

  • Neighbourhood testifying to the arrival of Westerners after the opening of the country. A crossroads marked by two Russian-Roman Catholic churches, two Anglican and Shinto temples near the former consulate of the United Kingdom, small colorful houses very British. Panoramic view of the harbour. Visit to be extended by the two cemeteries for foreigners and Russian.
