Cruising: Hakodate, Japan


Our second Japanese port of call was Hakodate. Mostly a fishing town, it is best known for its morning market. So, that is where we spent most of our time. Great t check out all the different seafood, focusing on those that are local to the area. Once again, we were amzed at the pricing. Fresh food is VERY expensive in Japan!

As usual, we took to some local restaurants, and had a relatively inexpensive rice and seafood dish. It was tasty, but most memorable because of the location. After all, what better place for Japanese food than in Japan?

On arrival, we were greeted by a colorful display by a firefighting boat.
