Exploring the Picturesque Slopes of Motomachi – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

The 19 slopes of the Motomachi area in Hakodate stretch all the way from the mountain to the sea and make for some incredible photo opportunities. Don’t miss Hachiman-zaka, which has famously been used in TV commercials, movies, and postcards! The most popular route begins at the foot of Motoi-zaka and heads towards Motomachi Park. From there, you continue towards the mountain and hit up Hachiman-zaka, Daisan-zaka, and Nijukken-zaka. Make sure to save a whole afternoon for your stroll since you can easily lose yourself walking among Hakodate’s romantic and nostalgic avenues for hours!
