The third-largest city after Sapporo and Asahikawa, Hakodate was the first Japanese city to be opened to foreign trade in 1854. This long-standing overseas presence is most evident in the Motomachi district, which includes an elaborate Russian Orthodox Church, as well as the ornate British Consulate building, and the old Public Hall. The city is also home to 'Goryokaku', a western-style fort, which Samurai rebels took control of, forming the short-lived Ezo Republic in 1869. Hakodate's focal point is its mountain, and the night-time view of the city from the summit is an absolute must for any visitor. Lucky Pierrot restaurants dot the city, and are a Hakodate exclusive to boot, with each one having its own unique theme. Any foodie worth their salt should try their luck at finishing the gigantic 'futucho' burger.
HAKODATE DANSHAKU CLUB HOTEL AND RESORTS
The name 'Danshaku' is derived from “Baron Ryokichi Kawada”. Baron Kawada studied shipbuilding in Scotland. Returning home, he brought British culture, modern shipbuilding technology and, modern agricultural technology into Hakodate.
He succeeded in cultivating a British potato suitable for the Japanese climate, which would go on to alleviate food shortages. The potato was named 'Danshaku' meaning 'Baron'. Nowadays, the Danshaku-imo is well-known to Japanese people and has become a staple food of Hokkaido.
