As the crossing point between Hokkaido and Honshu, railway travelers have been passing through this region for over a century. The nostalgic port town of Hakodate, a tourist-friendly regional capital, has an unusually East-meets-West rich cultural heritage that makes it one of Hokkaido’s most interesting cities. Hakodate is the gateway to the stunning Oshima Peninsula of volcanic mountains, rugged coastlines, pleasant onsen and compact historic towns, with a variety of activities.
