The photo from above is taken at Goryokaku Tower, just outside the park. There’s some somewhat odd (to me) hagiography going on there for this guy: Hijikata Tishizō. He was a Tokugawa general in the Boshin War and died at the Battle of Hakodate. i.e. He was a rebel leader on the losing side of the civil war. Also kind of sounds like a prick TBQH.
Today’s #Hakodate breakfast started with excellent local specialty Butter Coffee and got better from there.
Hakodate City Central #Library has a resident cat. We saw it running around outside but didn’t get a photo. Do not feed the library cat.
Yo @koosli get some of these at the Hakodate Station 7-Eleven. I finally found them just as I nearly don’t need them anymore.
Hakodate street cars run in all weather. #TramToots
Pretty religious bunch in #Hakodate
Breakfast of champions at #Hakodate - Tourist prices, but then we successfully navigated buying veggies from the grandmas at the market so we’ll make up the difference at dinner
Check out the view from our hotel balcony #Hakodate
