Hakodate is a major city of Hokkaido, located in the far north of Japan. It is a charming city where cultural heritages and modern liveliness are integrated together. You are introduced to a luxurious tour visiting Hakodate's evening view spots by rickshaw. Rickshaw is a two-wheel vehicle designed to carry people and is pulled by a rickshaw driver. It is faster than walking and can run on the roadway more safely than a bicycle, even when the passenger has baggage. So they are operated in many places in Japan since the 19th century.
The rickshaw driver taking care of you on this tour knows all the tourist attractions and backstreets. He is an expert who offers a kind and careful tour. The rickshaw is capable of stable traveling without letting the passengers get wet even on a rainy or snowy day. What is more, a passenger using a wheelchair or having a stroller can enjoy the ride comfortably. (Please consult us when you book the tour.)
The tour starts at Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse and travels around the Preservation Districts for Groups of Historic Buildings in Hakodate. The port town flourished from the 19th to the beginning of the 20th century still reserves a townscape representing a fusion of eastern and western cultures. At the moment when the sun sets below the horizon, the whole port town is illuminated red by the sun. You will witness a time of wonders created by nature. If you are lucky, you may encounter unexpected events or views on the day.
The tour ends at Mt Hakodate Ropeway.
