Japan (Feb 2012) Day 8: Hakodate (Part 1)
Took the hotel's van to get to Toya station. From there, we took a train to Hakodate station.
We were surprised that although Hakodate is located at southern Hokkaido, however since it's near the sea, so it's actually very cold and very windy. Streets are slippery as well, so remember to get the spiked sole attachments from convenience shops.
