My friend shopped at a store here selling engraving on leather and metal pendants. The shop (owner?) was impatient and rude. He didn't finish listening to what we wanted engraved before starting and gave an obvious sigh of impatience after we pointed out what was missing. The engraving we did was an exact copy of a sample that was on... More

I found this shopping mall, contained in seven renovated historic warehouses, to have an appealing location. But it offered nothing fior sale that interested me. The shops feature mostly basic souvenirs that can be found anywhere in Japan. There is other merchandise, such as clothes and sweets, but nothing beckoned during my visit. I noted some places to eat and... More

Not so much on the history and stuff. Its more like a shopping area with tax free shops and drugs store. Please be noted that tax free is only when you purchase above 5000 yen.

In Hakodate, all the tourist place are close to each other's! I think it's fine for a visit but won't not worth to pay a lot of effort to go. Inside the warehouses are like any other souvenir shops! However I liked the environment and where it located!! I think it'd be nicer in winter times and at night!

Warehouses are nicely restored but mainly just souvenir shops selling random stuff that we did not need. It was pouring out though and this was a peaceful diversion.

The row of warehouses has been converted to a mini belt of shopping area for tourist, but it did not live up to my expectation. The only satisfying point was the Snaffles bar located in one of the warehouses. Snaffles are famous for their catchcakes and Hakodate is apparently its birthplace. I wanted to try just one catchcake as a... More

A must visit for anyone interested in browsing interesting knick-knack shops or strolling along the harbor. Hakodate was one of the first Japanese ports open to foreigners by Admiral Perry. As such, it has quite a few foreign buildings and a nice port area with old brick warehouses. The warehouses have been converted into shops while the wharf area now... More

We have visited the Red Brick Warehouses late in the evening after our trip to Goryukaku. There were lots of souvenir shops and cafes. The ladies would be busy in selecting their souvenirs while the gentlemen would leisurely have their cups of tea in one of the coffee houses thereat. Worth to spend an hour or two in touring around... More

Only the buildings and nothing much to see and buy. So if you want to do shopping like souvenirs then you can do it there however their price are much expensive compare to others places.
