Exclusive Shore Excursion

Hakodate, Japan
Hakodate’s History and Culture

Hakodate lies like an extended fan, with its folds formed by the Matsumae and Kameda Peninsulas. It was one of the first three ports in Japan opened for foreign trade in 1859. Since then, Hakodate has thrived as a fishing port and a gateway to Hokkaido, where ferries travel to and from the mainland. Experience this aspect of Japanese culture during your exclusive shore event today. Depart Hakodate port this morning and enjoy a visit to Fort Goryokaku. This star-shaped fort is now a popular park, although it is renowned as the first Western-style fort built in Japan and the site of the final conflict in Japan's last civil war. The Fort became a public park in the 1910s. Over one thousand cherry trees were planted along its moats, making it one of Hokkaido's best cherry blossom spots, mostly blooming in early May. The fort is also famous for its hundred-foot-wide moat, home to colorful Japanese carp. To see the fortress from above, enjoy the views from the observation deck of the nearby Goryokaku Tower. The 107- meter-tall tower is within view of the stunning Mt. Hakodate, Tsugaru Strait and the Yokotsu mountain range. Continue the tour to visit Donburi Yokocho Market. Located literally across the street, it is a small market full of delicious seafood. There is a mall (Donburi Yokocho Market) that specializes in restaurants that sell Kaisen Don (Sashimi Rice Bowl). Enjoy free time to explore at your own leisure, before reboarding your coach to take you back to your ship.
