“Beautiful but was largely shut down when I visited in winter”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

The red brick warehouse district in Kanemori are, as the name suggests - old red brick warehouses by the sea which were built in 1907, I believe to house produce for trade at the time. They still remain although have been transformed into restaraunts and shops which open up at night with coloured lighting, creating a beautiful night setting. The port containing a blue bay cruise lies in the port and strangely, the first concrete electricity pole complete with its plaque lies at the end of the street (as the name suggests this is a ridiculous tourist attraction and currently has the lowest rating on TA)

This place can be accessed via the tram system, although unfortunately the trams were not running the day we visited (2nd January), presumably due to this being a public holiday. We got a cab instead, I believe this cost around 1500 yen. We were also a a little disappointed to find only the Hakodate beer hall open when we visited, which could either represent a public holiday, the time of night (around 1900) or the winter season (covered in snow). Regardless we were able to get some great pictures and have an absolutely delicious dinner with accompanying drinks at the Hakodate beer hall, which I would strongly recommend to others who visit this area.

Definitely recommended as it provided a beautiful carnival like atmosphere and an experience different to others that I have had in Japan.

Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Great place to browse around amidst the historic Hakodate bay front. The shops have something everyone and there's even a small post office to mail off those post cards straight away!
