Scenic and good to explore on foot. Lots of sweets, cakes, trendy souvenirs to buy. They even have few stores selling fresh seafood.

a lot of small gift and food shops in three different buildings; convenient to bus stop or short walk from the JR station.

Nice place to visit to see all the local produce especially if you miss out on going to the morning market at the railway station. Prices are for tourists so nothing is cheap and you can buy most of the produce in the food hall of the local department store for half the price. But it is a nice area... More

This is a very touristy place to visit when coming to Hakodate. There are many souvenirs and restaurants in the area. Most all tour groups would stop here. Another place to visit is Motomachi where I recommend that you spend a leisurely time strolling around. Best to visit Motomachi during the day time as everything closes in the evenings.

A place for shopping if the rain is too big! Totally tourist place, good to visit. The scenery was good when evening comes as the lighting makes it very beautiful. Starbucks is just next to it. There are a few buildings connected together hence it good to take a look perhaps.

Historical site with nice old red brick warehouses giving you a nostalgic feeling when walking around. Inside is a jumble of vendors selling touristy stuff you might not purchase but it is still worth it to walk into a few of them.

Good to visit, bad to buy. Few restaurant serving average food with average price. Well, the scenery is nice, it is next to a port. Starbucks is available. Other than that, just take photographs with the building.

I guess it's too much to hope that these nice old red brick warehouses would be filled with anything other than tacky tourist shops. Alas. But still worth a visit, and some pretty funny tack to be had if you want to give a friend back home a giggle.

A nice collection of buildings on the waterfront, a 10 minute walk from the fish market, but barely worth it if you are not interested in touristy gift shops selling mostly the exact same things as most if the other touristy gift shops we had already seen.

These old warehouses are now full of chintzy shops with little or no reference to their history or original purpose. If you're out that way, maybe go by for a photo opportunity - otherwise avoid - they are a tourist trap
