Hakodate Port was among the first Japanese ports to be opened to international trade towards the end of the Edo Period (1600-1867). Several red brick warehouses from past trading days survive along the waterfront in the bay area of Hakodate, and have recently been redeveloped into an atmospheric shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

Besides a typical range of trendy souvenir, fashion, interior and sweets shops, the complex also features a restaurant, a beer hall, a chapel for weddings and sightseeing cruises of the bay.

Getting there and around

The red brick warehouses are a 15-20 minute walk from Hakodate Station or a five minute walk from the Jujigai tram stop (5 minutes, 210 yen from Hakodate Station).
