Day Trip to Esashi/江差日帰り旅行

Esashi town is a capital of Hiyama subprefecture. It is located on the Sea of Japan coast and once flourished as a fishing port that marked an enourmous catch of herrings. It takes about one hour and half by car from Hakodate and it's a recommendable place for one day trip.

江差町は桧山支庁の所在地です。日本海側に面していて、かつてはとんでもない量の漁獲高を誇るニシン漁で栄えた町です。函館からは車で約一時間半の場所にあるので、日帰り旅行におすすめの場所です。

Konbu has been one of the important export products in Hokkaido. In medieval time in Japan, Japanese samurai society applied rice salary system. But until 20th century, rice cultivation was impossible in Hokkaido because of its cool climate. So Kombu kelp substituted rice in Hokkaido.

Kelp is still an important commercial product of Hokkaido and at this shop, you can find and get various kelp related products.

Marukoshi Nishinami/まるこし西奈美

when you stroll around the west area of Hakodate, how about taking soba, or buckwheat noodle lunch at this restaurant?

You can find this buckwheat noodle restaurant near tram stops, Hakodate Dock Mae(函館どっく前), or Oomachi(大町). If you get on a tram from Hakodate Ekimae or Jujigai and get off the tram at Oomachi, walk in the same direction that the tram goes away. Soon you will see a convenience store, Seven Eleven on your right. Then you will find the restaurant on your left. A character "越" in a circle is a good sign to identify.
