A Day in Hakodate & Tokyo

14th May 2009 – Hakodate Morning Market (asa-ichi) in search of breakfast.

A Day in Hakodate & Tokyo

Just need to cross the road from hotel and we reached Hakodate Morning Market.

One of the many stalls selling dried products. From one of the stalls, we bought 2 packets of cheese scallops (each 500 grams) and 3 packets of cuttlefish. Total damage is ¥5000.

Another stall that sells seasoning paste used for cooking.

Hakodate’s signature ika (squid) donburi ¥1890. Fresh live squid on top that will wriggle (dance) when you pour soy sauce over it.

The chef will help you to cut the head portion. My partner squirms with discomfort while I am eating this. LOL!

This is how the squid look like when alive. 😛

Cloudy skies – seems like it’s going to pour soon. To avoid getting caught in the rain, we hastily went back to hotel to check-out and head towards JR Hakodate Bus Terminal.

Wow your trip to Japan was really filled with activities! I’m actually planning a trip to Tokyo toward to end of this year. May I ask which hotel you chose in Ueno? I’m currently researching any and all of the convenient *budget* hotels and a 5 minute walk from Ueno station sounds great! Would you recommend the hotel that you stayed in? Thanks!

Hi Kathleen, my Japan trip was really fun-filled but yet not too packed and hasty. I am thinking to go again by end of the year too! Ha ha! Anyway, the hotel I stayed in Ueno is Tokyo Ueno Touganeya Hotel. I would definitely recommend it as my experience during then was great – friendly staff, reasonable price, good/central location, clean and cozy too!

Hi Ronald, i am going to Hokkaido in May this year. Your blog has been helpful in my planning. I had heard that hokkaido is comparably more backward and not as tourist friendly compared to Tokyo. Can i ask if there will be difficulty finding our way around hokkaido if i don’t speak japanese and only able to read simple jap?

Hi Hao XIang, glad that it’s of help. In my opinion, Hokkaido is more of sight and sound rather than city or shopping. But, still you can be assured that it’s still tourist friendly with English words in trains, tourist areas, restaurant, etc. There was only one instance where I could not find the local bus to “Kaitaku no Mura” as it was in Japanese. Then a helpful man (after seeing me taking out maps) spoke to me in Japanese (which I don’t understand at all), I just keep on repeating “Kaitaku no Mura” and he lead me to the actual bus stop. People are very friendly and helpful.

Think you can rest your mind. And if do have difficulty, just treat it as an adventure and ask around with the younger Japanese, they do understand simple English. 🙂
