Hakodate has been continually inhabited since 10,000 BCE. Unlike elsewhere in Japan, much of that history has survived, making it a unique place to experience ancient Japan at its rawest. Here you can travel through time from the Jomon period to the modern era. Feel the close relationship with nature and the forests that have long been hallmarks of Hakodate. Since ancient days, sensible
forestry practices have been a hallmark of the area and many locals acted as wardens to the majestic forests found here.
Gaze upon the enchanting Tsugaru straits, the traditional boundary between the main island and Hokkaido. Imagine how those ancient peoples navigated such treacherous waters to enable trade between cultures. Finally, at night, enjoy a relaxing dinner made with local ingredients and a hot spring to heal the tiredness of your long day. In the morning, enjoy a refreshing walk while looking at the vast ocean in front of the hotel.
・Take a 2.5 hour hike to the summit of Mt. Hakodate, which has amazing views of the city, while learning about the history and tales of Hokkaido.
・Delve deep into the life of the Ainu people, known as the indigenous people of Hokkaido at the Hakodate City Museum of Northern Peoples. The collections of historical crafts and good will connect you to their lifestyle and spiritual culture.
・Take a guided tour at two Jomon UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites with a Jomon expert who will take you deep into the Jomon world. What made the Jomon settle here and what prompted their artistic expressions?
・Experience Mt. Esan which has long been religiously relevant to
this area and is still revered today.
