Please Take A Rest and Enjoy Views -Motomachi Park in Hakodate-
June 27th, 2017
Motomachi Park (元町公園) is located on a hill that tourists can look over Gulf of Hakodate at the foot of Mt. Hakodate (函館山). Hakodate City Magistrate's Office (箱館奉行所) and Hokkaido Development Commission (開拓使) were established once. Motomachi Tourist Information Center (元町観光案内所), Old Book Warehouse (函館支庁書籍庫) and Statues of Hakodate Big Four (函館四天王像) are on the site. Hakodate Big Four are Mr. Ichiuemon Imai (今井市右衛門), Mr. Bunuemon Hirata (平田文右衛門), Mr. Kumashiro Watanabe (渡辺熊四郎) and Mr. Tokizo Hiratsuka (平塚時蔵). They used their own funds on developing Hakodate, so Mr. Tamemoto Tokito (時任為基) named them Hakodate Big Four. There are Motoizaka slope (基坂), Churches, Former Hakodate Ward Public Hall (旧函館区公会堂), Former British Consulate (旧イギリス領事館) and Former Soma House (旧相馬邸) near Motomachi Park. Admission free.
