By far one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Hakodate, Motomachi is known for its historic buildings with varied architecture influences and designs. In the 1850’s, Japan opened to foreign trade after a long hiatus and soon people from all around the world came here to stay for business purposes. Ovetime, the people left a part of their culture, art and religion behind. Today, Motomachi preserves and relives the stories of all the people that found their second home here.
Some of these building include the Chinese Memorial Hall, the Russian Orthodox Church, the Old British Consulate and the Hakodate Public Hall. The streets of the neighbourhood spin a rather charming story for visitors and is apt for a casual stroll when in the city. After sunset, the streets are lit up with beautiful lights and during Christmas, the historic buildings are bathed in warm light to transform the whole neighbourhood into one of the most romantic places in Hakodate. The streets here are packed with ice-cream shops! Don’t forget to grab one during your walk through this timeless place.
