It's an interesting area to stroll around especially if you take the time to read of its history. It has unrealised potential. The choice of food is poor and there's an abundance of souvenir type operations which may appeal to some.

This old Brick Warehouse is located by the sea and picture perfect. However, inside these warehouses are full of stores!! Clothes, music boxes, sweets, wines, seafoods, and so on! Not forget to mention restaurants. If you love shopping, you must visit this place. There are very unique merchandise here such as " squid-ink dye " cloth. Worth to visit!

I collect those cute little Glass animals that they make in Japan. It's almost a ritual for me when I visit Japan to acquire one. They have a great range of these beauties. Apart from my little fetish for Glass animals this place has a great retail presence and sells everything a tourist might yearn for. I got a Samurai... More

If you want a good place to shop in Hakodate, this is it. And a rarely seen Starbucks in Hakodate is also in this area. These brick buildings are nice for photographs.

Nice setting in old warehouses. Lots of shops housed in these old buildings in the old harbour area and will make for a one or two hour stroll. Nice to return to even after walking in old Hakodate. Mitt be Japan's most picturesque shopping-mall?

This area is located by the old port as it's clearly illustrated. You could look up at the mountain and looked at the cable car roping up. The warehouse has turned into shops, more shops and restaurants. I was hoping to keep at least one as a museum or some sort of educational venue. It is nice to visit in... More

Lots of souvenir shops and places to eat with closer views of the Hakodate dock. Feel the history of what used to be a bustling harbor

Came by this place at night when all the lights were lit up. Even though it was freezing due to the strong winds (almost blew me over), the pictures I took were beautiful! It was as if I was being transported back to another time. Must visit! Take note that the stores there close at 7pm but you can still... More
