Hakodate

Hakodate ©
A gateway to the island, Hakodate has gained a reputation for its waterfront attractions, its proximity to some of the island's most popular natural sites, and its seafood.
On the 2nd (Mon), get engrossed in the history at Hakodate Museum of Northern Peoples and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St.John's Church Hakodate. Here are some ideas for day two: visit Motomachi, steep yourself in history at The Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward, make a trip to Hachimanzaka, then enjoy breathtaking views from Goryokaku Tower, and finally admire the striking features of Goryokaku Park.

Tokyo to Hakodate is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also take a train; or do a combination of car and ferry. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Tokyo in July, with highs in Hakodate at 26°C and lows at 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel to Sapporo.

A modern, bustling city known for its beer brewery, Sapporo attracts millions of visitors with its Snow Festival, during which elaborate ice and snow sculptures are exhibited all over town.
Sapporo Clock Tower and Former Hokkaido Government Office Building are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sapporo: Nikka Whisky Yoichi Distillery (in Yoichi-cho) and Otaru Canal (in Otaru). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Susukino, stroll around Odori Park, take a stroll around Sapporo Underground Shopping Centre Aurora Town, and enjoy the scholastic atmosphere at Hokkaido University Sapporo Campus.
