Bay Area and Kanamori Red Brick Warehouses
Bay Area (ベイエリア) facing Gulf of Hakodate (函館湾) is located between Hakodate Station and Motomachi Area (元町). Tourist facilities such as Kanamori Red Brick Warehouse (金森赤レンガ倉庫) are built, and it is dotted with Lucky Pierrot and Hasegawa Store. There are boarding points for Cruising Gulf of Hakodate. A lot of tourists visit to buy a souvenir or enjoy themselves. Red brick building, pavements with stone and Shichizai Bridge (七財橋) made from stone make you feel a historical atmosphere.
Kanamori Red Brick Warehouses were built to storage supplies of the port in late 1800. A beer hall was opened in 1898, and was an origin of Hakodate Beer Hall (函館ビヤホール). The port functions were not required by varying means of transportation, and Red Brick Warehouses finished an original role and were designed as "Traditional Building". Kanamori Hall (金森ホール), Kanamori-Yobutsukan (金森洋物館) and History Plaza (函館ヒストリープラザ) and Bay Hakodate (BAYはこだて) are open to the public now. Cafes, the beer hall and souvenir shops are opened for sightseeing.
