Hakodate’s is quite popular for some rather beautiful ‘slopes’ that offer some of the most beautiful views of the city. The Motoi-zaka is one such spot. Come here during your causal walks through the city to see the street lined with trees leading onto some of the most gorgeous views of the harbour along with the majestic mountains seen on the horizon. The slope was used as a milestone during the 1870s and 1880s – at the time even called the “Townhall slope” (named after the town hall that was built here during the Edo period). The famous Bronze statue of a Phoenix placed here, marks the heart of the slope.
If you love exploring cities you visit on foot, a walk around this slope will be a happy addition to your sightseeing experience.
