Hakodate: tourist information
Hakodate is a city and port located in Oshima. It is the capital city of Oshima Sub prefecture. The city is overlooked by Hakodateyama (Mount Hakodate), a lumpy, totally-forested mountain. The summit of the mountain is easily reached by either hiking trail cable car, or car. The nighttime view from the summit is renowned all over Japan as one of the loveliest sights in the country. A not-so-well known local nickname of the bumpy mountain is Gagyuzan ("Mount Cow's-back"), which alludes to the way the mountain's shape resembles that of a resting cow. Hakodate is home to the famous European-style Goryokaku fort, which was built in the shape of a five-pointed star in 1866. It is now used as a public park. The park is a popular spot in Hokkaido for hanami (cherry blossom viewing). The small but bustling city is also famous as the site of Hijikata Toshizo's last stand. The city is also known for Hakodate Shio Ramen, where instead of having pork cutlet placed inside the soup, sliced squid is used. On a similar note, Hakodate's city fish is the squid. Every year (around July) the city gets together for the Hakodate Port Festival. Hordes of citizens gather in the streets to dance a wiggly dance known as the Ika-odori (Squid Dance), the name of which describes the dance appropriately. The glowing lights of squid-catching boats can be seen in the waters surrounding the city.
