See a blend of Western and Japanese styles in the architecture of The Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward, an early 20th-century assembly hall. The building's design stands in testament to the growth in foreign trade enjoyed during the Meiji period, with the building--constructed in 1910, towards the close of the Meiji period--combining Japanese arabesque details with broadly European art nouveau features. Take a tour of the museum to see many artifacts related to the history of the city, while also admiring the building itself, inside and out.

The Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward Reviews
楽しみにしていた公会堂は、2021年春まで修復中で、見学できなかった。近くには 旧英国領事館やハリストス教会、庭園などがあり、元町散策を十分楽しめる。 再来年の完成後に、再訪したい。 more »The public hall i was looking forward to was being restored until spring 2021, and i couldn't see it. Nearby you will find the former British Consulate, The Church of Christ and gardens, where you can fully enjoy the original town. I want to revisit it again after completion next year.
大きな洋館ですが、現在改装工事中とのことで、中は見ることができませんでした。 学生の頃は、ソフトクリームを食べながら、隣の公園でよく遊んでいた思い出のある場所でした。 more »It is a big Western-style building, but it is undergoing renovation sit-in, so i couldn't see it inside. When I was a student, I had memories of eating ice cream and playing in the park next door.
Lovely colourful, old building that commands nice views across the harbour. It is up a slight hill, so if you have mobility issues please take that into account, though it is nothing too taxing. You're free to wander the halls and take in the pleasant interior. If I recall correctly, you are able to rent traditional Japanese clothing and pose for pictures on the balcony. Well worth a visit.
Nice and beautiful place. Light-blue wall and yellow line, lovely colour combination. The main hall inside (2nd floor) is astonishing and the view from the balcony is amazing! The volunteer persons will explain the history and would help you to take a picture. I heard the place will be closed from October 2018 for 2 years for renovation. Better to check the website before you visit.
