What to Expect

Hakodate is the southern tip of Hokkaido and started developing earlier than Sapporo in the mid 19th century. In this tour, you first head for Hakodate Tropical Botanical Garden, where you can see various kinds of tropical flowers and trees such as Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, Angel Trumpet and different cuctuses. Believe it or not, you can see many monkeys in a hot spring here from December through early May. It's fun to see them soak in the hot spring. After lunch, you walk around Motomachi district, where you can see a cluster of old churches such as Russian Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church and Hakodate Episcopal Church. You can also see some old historical buildings around here. Cable cars are operated to take you to the top of Mt. Hakodate, where you can see the panoramic view of Hakodate. Your tour ends by eating sukiyaki at a famous 80-year-old sukiyaki restaurant, Asari. You can enjoy the cuisine in a Japanese-style room.

“ Great tour of Hakodate with Yuki ”

Our group of 8 spent the day touring Hakodate with Yuki in a private van hired for the day. We enjoyed our visit to Hakodate and all the sites that Yuki managed to pack into our short stay. Our lunch stop was especially memorable as we all tried different things. We were fortunate to experience the last days of the cherry blossoms in northern Japan - Yuki understood our wishes and ensured that we had a fabulous view of the blossoms at the Goryokaku Park, and the view from the Goryokaku Tower was wonderful. We highly recommend Hiroyuki to any group or couple looking for a knowledgeable guide in Japan

“ Best tour ever ”

We booked many private tours on this trip to Japan,but Yuki was the best tour guide. His English is outstanding, his knowledge of Aomori was excellent, he was fun and flexible and he took us to a restaurant frequented by locals that was both great and very inexpensive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yuki very highly.
