An entry of the 2007's annual festival
Today, it is really fine day and this evening, from Jujigai intersection through Matsukaze-cho Streetcar Stop, a festival parade is held. How about go and see and if you like how about joining the parade? Ika-odori, or squid dance is easy to learn and it's no problem to join the dance.
After the parade, you can visit temporal festival stalls set up in Daimon area. You can reach to there in five-minute walk from JR Hakodate Station. Just walk toward Matsukaze-cho direction walking around the streetcar street.
Enjoy the summer festival time in Hakodate!
