The Western-style building with the style of the Meiji period is very well selected. It is located on the Kisaka slope. Looking out from the balcony, it is the green Motomachi Park. A little further away is the blue and blue Hakodate Bay. No wonder that Emperor Taisho came to Hakodate as a residence during the time of the crown prince; Emperor Showa and Heisei also rested here when he visited Hokkaido. The construction of the public hall was funded by Ma Teppei, a wealthy businessman in Hakodate at that time.
The old public hall of Hakodate District is one of the most representative buildings in the many foreign-style buildings in Machi. It has a history of more than 100 years. It is still very well preserved and it is very close to the park.
There are many historical buildings in Motomachi, Hakodate, combining Japanese and Western, but of course the most prominent one is the resplendent old public hall of Hakodate, above Motomachi Park. First of all, it is very large in scale and symmetrical from left to right. Compared with the small buildings in the area, it is very special; secondly, the pink-blue walls and golden beams and railings are particularly eye-catching; the third building has a wide view in front of it, allowing you to overlook The beautiful downtown area of Hakodate and the bay to the west. Since the public hall faces the northeast, the sun is directly behind it in the afternoon, and the backlighting is very strong for taking pictures. Please choose cloudy or morning.
There''s nothing much within, cept for a few rooms with well worn furniture. One room, which displays the peace treaties signed with Russia, was mildly interesting.
The Old Public Hall of Hakodate District-Built in 1910, it is an all-wooden building. It is the most representative building in the historical district of Motomachi. Its bright yellow appearance is quite novel, and its symmetrical shape is very elegant. There is a fee inside the museum. When the weather is good, you can see the scenery of the distant port on the second floor. When we came, the snow covered everything, so we took some exterior scenes, the original bronze statues, signs, etc.
