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.
