hokkaido trip: day 1 in hakodate

We left Haneda really early in the morning and made it in time for the Hakodate morning market (the real one, as you see in the there a fake market somewhere?) right next to the JR Hakodate station.

It was amazing! Crabs, scallops, fish, sea urchin roe, everywhere! So, so delicious (the miso soup had crab in it!)

We also went to these historic red brick buildings that had a bunch of shops and cafes.

Then we were off to Goryokaku Park. You can't see it here, but the park is in a huge star shape! We were in a hurry so we didn't go up the viewing tower to see it.

Apparently Hakodate has one of the most famous night cityscape views in the world, and it was really breathtaking! It was also really crowded, which was a turnoff, but that was expected.

We had dinner in a cute little alley with a bunch of restaurants. Hokkaido is famous for its ramen so we got some yuumy miso ramen!

Next, Sapporo!
