About Hakodate, Japan

Opened to U.S. ships in 1854 and then in 1857 to general foreign trade, Hokodate was the chief port of Hokkaido until recently replaced by Sapporo. It is linked with Aomori on Honshu by the Seikan Tunnel. A commercial and industrial center, the city's main industries are fishing, shipbuilding, and food processing. Of interest is the Goryokaku, the fort where the Tokugawa shogun made his last stand.

Don't need a shore excursion here. The port provides a free shuttle to downtown and everything is walkable from there. But there are only limited number of things to see.

Good - Princess lacked direction of their concern for travelers experience - their key was to sell over cost shore excursions

Night tram was an amazing view. Would love to have seen any attraction having to deal with Kabuki, Shinto temples, Geisha and/or sumo. These are very attractive destinations in Japan
