This morning, your guide will pick you up from the hotel, followed by a transport by 30-minute JR express train to Onuma
Quasi National Park
, located about 20 kilometers north of Hakodate.
Once at the park, you can see Mount Komagatake
, an impressive dormant volcano. Continue with a leisure walk, you will see beautiful lakes dotted with small islands, several of which are connected with each other by small bridges. Other activities to be enjoyed in Onuma Park include
cycling, canoeing, tennis, golf and fishing.
After some time exploring the park, we travel back to
Hakodate by train for a visit to the Bay Area and the Motomachi District
is full of historical buildings such as churches and one-time foreign
residences. This area offers the perfect backdrop for a photo opportunity.
Next, take the tram to Goryokaku Park
which is a massive,
star shaped, Western style citadel, which was built in the last years of the
Edo Period for the defense of Hakodate against the imperialist threat posed by
the Western powers. You can enjoy walking around through beautiful scenery in
four seasons: Cherry blossoms in spring, green trees in summer, autumn leaves
in fall and snow in winter.
To finish the day, take a ride on the elevator up 107 meters
to the top of Goryokaku Tower
to get a bird's-eye view of Goryokaku Park from
the observation deck of this tower.
Overnight at hotel in Hakodate.
