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.

No excursion but there is lots to see within walking distance. Hokodate is much bigger than Kushiro and we enjoyed seeing the markets and shops, even though it was raining.

Wonderful little town on an Ithmus. Easy to navagate from the fishmarkets to the fortress Goryokaku. Very walkable but quaint with its trams, some very modern and some vintage.
Easy to visit the attractions without guided tour! View from the mountain is stunning but nighttime view is supposed to be spectacular if time alliws

Very much like San Francisco with tram and coastal city feel. There is a cable car trip - go on this if it is a clear day. You can walk around the hilly streets and visit various churches and ceremony. Good food places, lots of streets to explore. There was a firework display when it got dark. Try to do the cable car at night if it is a clear sky.
