Million Dollar View, the view from atop Mt. Hakodate in Hakodate, Japan

Million-Dollar View

It may be only 334 meters high, but Mt. Hakodate has stunning views of the city of Hakodate and the surrounding waters. Known as the "million-dollar view," it's one of Japan's best-known spots for panoramic vistas. A gondola will get you to the observation deck in three minutes, and a hike takes around 45.

Remains of a Lost Republic

The Goryokaku is a unique star-shaped fort built in the mid-19th century by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect Hakodate from Western powers. In 1869, former samurai established the Republic of Ezo here before imperial troops defeated them six months later. Today, the fort is a leafy oasis surrounded by more than 1,000 cherry trees that bloom in spring.

The Lowdown on Godowns

The Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse is a beautifully preserved group of bay-side godowns — a term for warehouses derived from an Indian dialect — dating to the early 20th century. Today, these buildings offer an eclectic mix of shopping and dining, but even their architecture makes them worth a stop.

Kaisendon, seafood bowl of crab, tobiko caviar, tuna, and more, in Hakodate, Japan

Local Cuisine

Hakodate is a seafood lover's utopia. Cruise to Hakodate and drop anchor near the asaichi (morning market) south of Hakodate Station, and you'll find a myriad of eateries offering marine delicacies such as king crab, sushi and uni (sea urchin). If in doubt, try Maruyama Shoten's kaisendon (seafood bowl) of raw uni, squid, salmon and roe over rice.

Close up of makisu, sushi roller mats, in Hakodate, Japan

Shopping

Celebrate Hokkaido's oceanic heritage with a cute squid-themed souvenir — favorites ranges from stuffed animals to keychains. Take home traditional Hokkaido handmade wooden items, such as spoons, bowls, placemats and other kitchenware, or pick up a bar of specialty soap made from Hokkaido-sourced materials: The local seaweed is thought to take exfoliation to the next level. Seek out these and other distinctive trinkets at the shops at Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse during your visit.

INSIDER TIP

There's no tipping in Japan, but you'll face an 8 percent sales tax everywhere except major retailers, which often have tax-fee shopping campaigns.
