Discover Japanese Food Culture and Onuma Park with private guide

Port city Hakodate attracts many tourists for its fresh seafood. Let's go to the morning market first. You will enjoy various kinds of seafood, vegetables and fruits. Crabs, squid, shellfish, octopus, shrimp-they are alive. Would you like to taste some of them?

Then catch a train to Onuma Park. It takes only 30 minutes to get there. The park is one of the new Three Sights of Japan. A view of the lake and Mt. Komagatake is like a vast Japanese garden. If you like walking, why don't you take a 50-minutes lakeshore walking? If you don't like walking very much, take a short course and take good photos at view points. Or take a pleasure boat. I recommend Onuma dumpling as a local specialty.

Have a buffe lunch at EPUY that only uses local produce from 10 kilometers within the restaurant. A reservation is required at least one day before the tour date.

Return to Hakodate.

You can enjoy strolling along the lakeshore, which usually takes 50 minutes. Or take a short course for taking photos or take a 30-minute pleasure boat. Allow about 1. 5 hours.
