This street runs up the hill to the street with all the churches and the entrance to the ropeway. We took photos and enjoyed the walk.

Hachimanzaka is the most well-known hill in the area (and Hakodate), providing a nice view to the ocean. Many hills parallel to Hachimanzaka also overlook the water. So it's worth walking around the area. Nearby are many buildings from the days when Hakodate was the first international port. The Old Public Hall and Old British Consulate are withing walking distance.

This is just one of the hills (called "Slope" on the map) that rewards you with a great view as you make it farther uphill. Most people stand in the middle of the road to get a nice photo where the street and view are framed by the trees.

Walked through the Motomichi area after going up Mt Hakodate. Lots of lovely churches and architecture with the slope very reminiscent of San Francisco. Beautiful are off the tourist trail.

You won't miss this slope, if you explore Motomachi area, so you can compare views from all different slopes leading from there to the sea and choose your favorite.

When we came to Hachiman-zaka while exploring the Motomachi area, I wondered why it warranted a star on the tourist map. Only one other of the myriad slopes got this designation. And the Motomachi Catholic Church with its magnificent altar and beautifully carved Stations of the Cross got none. I thought the view of the port was lovely from the... More

Hachimanzaka is a beautiful slope, and many Japanese movies were shot in this spot. It is, of course, free to walk on this slope. So, why don't you go to take a look?

There were numerous sloping streets in Motomachi area with quaint, charming buidlings lining the streets. Totally picture worthy.
