Towards the end of the Edo period, Hakodate port opened itself to international trade (one of the first Japanese ports to do so) and as a result of this, soon turned into a burgeoning port city of Japan.
The signs of that past glory still live in the Red Brick (Kanemori) warehouses that line the Hakodate waterfront. The warehouses however have recently been repurposed as an atmospheric commercial complex with multiple shopping, dining and entertainment facilities.
Apart from the typical fashion, interior, souvenir shops and restaurants, the newly designed Kanemori Warehouse complex also accommodates a wedding chapel, a beer hall, sightseeing cruises as well as a History Plaza.Places nearby:
