Explore old Samurai street with government licensed tour guide.

We visit two samurai houses open to the public, miso and soy sauce shop and local handy craft museum and shop.

Kakunodate is called as a little Kyoto of northern Japan, so the best season to visit is early April (depends on the year), but you can enjoy this tour all year long.

Private Full Day Guided Tour In Hakodate

Hakodate
6 hours

Family fun in Hakodate

We were only in Hakodate for 1 day. Tomio, our guide, was able to fit in a full day of activities into the day with being flexible at each activity to allow us the time to enjoy it. At the Market, Tomio, made sure we visited all the unique stalls and the stalls with the best food selections. We opted to take public transportation which worked well out well with our budget. Overall, Tomio was a great guide and my family enjoyed the day.

Thank your for the review. I hope you and your family member had great days in Japan.
