2017 I come here every time. Hakodate People gather to buy souvenirs in front of the red-brick Kanemori Warehouse.
Hakodate, Kanamori warehouse area.
In front of Kanamori Warehouse in 2017. I often come From the streetcar crossroads to Suehirocho, there are many places to see, such as the famous retro building, and he has this red brick warehouse by the sea. Most of them are souvenir shops, but there are also restaurants. Are there many in Hokkaido along the coast? A family restaurant called “Lucky Pierrot”? there is. Even though it’s a weekday, everywhere is full of tourists. I felt like there were a lot of Asian foreigners this year, but… He will continue to grow. I’ve heard that lots of land in Hokkaido is being bought by foreigners, so it looks like there will be more. 2017 is like that.
Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse
At Hakodate’s streetcar station, there is a cross street station or a bus stop. If you get off at that station and go to the coast, you will find the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse. There are several warehouses, and there are many souvenir shops and restaurants inside. It is quite a famous place in Hakodate. This Kanamori Warehouse is the site of a building that was founded as a western goods store by the first Kumashiro Watanabe from Oita Prefecture. Before that, at the end of the Edo period, it was a foreign settlement and a shipyard. What is interesting is that due to the historical background, there are many Western-style buildings related to foreigners, such as the former British Consulate, in the Yamate area. A lot of designated buildings are standing. This is very impressive. This time, I went around Hakodate’s designated buildings from end to end. It is recommended to use an electric charinko at that time. It’s easy.
