The city's landscape is strongly marked by this era. The city has developed its old red brick warehouses, which are now a favorite meeting place for young people because of their many restaurants. There is also an old district of western houses and wooden churches. The place smells of the Meiji era. Many of Hakodate's famous places are housed in old western-style buildings built during that time, when foreigners settled and did business in the city.

The place is of course famous for its ultra-fresh sushi, especially salmon sushi, and for its local version of ramen: shio-ramen.

Hakodate is also famous for its scenic views from Mount Hakodate, which overlooks the city. You can get there by cable car. The flowery landscape of the park surrounding Goryokaku Fortress - Japan's only western citadel - is beautiful in spring.
