HAKUOKI SHINKAI

The first game of 2008 from Otomate, a game publisher specializing in games geared towards female gamers, is a well-known romance adventure game. Based on the "Shinsengumi" who were active towards the end of the Edo period, this is a dramatization of the tragic fates of the Bakumatsu nationalists. Accurate to historical fact, the Old Fort Goryokaku -- site of the former Hakodate Magistrate’s Office that was the base of the Ezo republic established by former Bakufu and Shinsengumi troops -- is now one of the most representative tourist destinations in Hakodate, Hokkaido Prefecture.

Sightseeing Spot in This Area

With the opening of the Hokkaido shinkansen in March 2016, the southern Hokkaido region has become more accessible. At the heart of this region is Hakodate, renowned for having one of the top three night views in the world (as pictured); the expansive night views and historical architectural attractions such as the Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward are not to be missed. No discussion of cuisine is complete without mentioning the seafood. The "Hakodate Morning Market - Donburi Yokocho Market" – and its many specialty seafood shops – near the Hakodate JR Station is a great place to start if you are out of ideas about where to eat.
