Old Hakodate Post Office and Red Brick Warehouse, Hokkaido, Japan
//Two weeks back, I shared on an overview of our long awaited Hokkaido/Tokyo trip via Hong Thai Travel and I also shared on some of the places of interest we visited in our Day 2 and Day 3 of the trip. Last week, I’ve also shared on the places of interest we visited in Day 4 of our trip. In this post and more, I will be sharing in details on some of the sites we visited in Day 4 with a lot more pictures! So stay tuned!
On the fourth day, we were also brought to the Hakodate-Meijikan, Old Hakodate Post Office, over here, the buildings are more western influenced and it is currently now converted into a small shopping mall, selling mainly souvenirs to tourists.
There is a strange old man showcasing his pet rabbit on a table. The pet rabbit is also very tamed and simple ignore all the ooo and ahhh around it. Haha.
Spotted these cute owls and resisted them! My room looks like a bird park now, or more accurately an Owl Park and I need to stop spending and adding clutter to my room! Haha.
Inside the post office is also a mini bear museum which we didn’t buy the ticket to enter. This picture shall suffice. Heh.
Just next to the Old Post office is a cluster of warehouse, the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse. The shopping isn’t great and it is more for tourist to take a break with some cafes in there and to take pictures of the pretty brick warehouse!
We also spotted the Pure White Corn in one of the seafood warehouse, and their Japanese name which is written in Kanji (Chinese Character) is loosely translated to “Snow Spirit”. Heh. This was when his mum bought her second corn of the day!
In the warehouse, we also went to try the already too famous Snaffles Cheesecake of Hokkaido. Even though the chain is now in Singapore, it tasted better in Hokkaido then the ones in Singapore! Haha.
The buildings are all too pretty!
On the way back to our tour bus, we spotted this.
There is a no trespassing sign, but seriously, that guy has got a bus in front of his porch and who can resist not taking a photo with it?! So guess what I did? I ran in and took a quite picture and ended up looking too nervous in the picture. Damn.
