In 1858, Japan signed treaties with the United States, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and other countries, opening Hakodate, Kanagawa, Nagasaki, and Hyogo (Kobe) to the West, and opening ports in these places. Foreigners can rent houses and land in these places, so a unique Yirenkan Street is formed in these places. Motomachi was the place where the most foreigners lived in Hakodate. There are European churches of different styles and the former British consulate, leaving a lot of Western buildings.
Motomachi Ijinkan is a complex of buildings built here in the past by European and American countries. Different countries have different styles. It is a bit like an architectural museum. It is still very interesting. It is also one of the must-see attractions in Hakodate.
The mint green bungalows are very beautiful. There are very few exotic buildings in Japan. Their coffee is not expensive. It happened in the past and there are not many people. Come and sit while waiting for the next bus. Take a rest.
On the official tourism website of Hakodate, the place name Motomachi Ijinkan could not be found. However, it should be named in the same way as Kitano Ijinkan in Kobe. As a port city, Hakodate was the first place in Hokkaido to open to the outside world. Many foreign consulates are located in Hakodate. Motomachi is the place with the most foreign-style buildings. Many European-style churches and consulates, plus the slopes that see the sea in Motomachi, make this the most stylish place in Hakodate and a good place to take pictures. .
