Hakodate Restaurant Guide

Hakodate, located in the south-eastern part of the Oshima area, and is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Tsugaru Channel on the east, south and north sides. Due to the warm Tsugaru currents coming in from the Sea of Japan side, it is rather warm for a city in Hokkaido.From an area blessed with a deep bay, shipping and trade flourished, centered around fishing. In 1859, (6th year of the Ansei Period) Hakodate Port was opened along with the ports of Yokohama and Nagasaki.The "Battle of Hakodate" was the final conflict between the former Edo bakufu army and the new government army, which dragged on into the Meiji Period. The battle took place in Goryokaku, which has been declared a national special historical site.From 2016, a bullet train is planned to connect Aomori Station and Hakodate Station via the Seikan Tunnel.It goes without saying that the seafood as delicious as the city's fishing business flourished, but the Yakitori-Bento - grilled pork on a stick - of the local convenience store "Hasegawa Store" has been a famous dish of Hakodate for 30 years.In southern Hokkaido, "yakitori" usually refers to pork.
