ROOF TOP SHARE KITCHEN
The top floor of the hotel features a shared kitchen which can be used by guests.
In addition to a co-use refrigerator, there are also plenty of cooking utensils. Why not purchase local ingredients and prepare a meal with your friends while gazing at the famous Hakodate sunrise? It's a whole new way to experience travel.
Take a step outside the kitchen and you'll find yourself on an open terrace with a full view of the Hakodate area.
Here, you can have a seat and feel the gentle breeze from the port while dining on a hand-cooked meal or local gourmet items. In Summer, it is also the perfect place to get a full view of the nearby fireworks show.
The book lounge retains the colorful atmosphere of the building's former use as a bank.
Here, you will find texts that educate you about the Hakodate area, as well as photo books capturing the vast Hokkaido landscape. Grab a book for yourself and gain a taste of history in a relaxed atmosphere.
A playroom with plenty of space for children to run around while you kick off your shoes and relax.
You can even take a nap or plan your next day's schedule on a computer.
There are many uses and plenty of equipment, like hammmocks and large cushions, for your pleasure.
Art can be seen everywhere within HakoBA,
beginning with the front desk which greets guests with the full power of Hakodate.
There are several monuments reflecting the history of the town and the building, including signboards, bank emblems, and an authentic boat wheel. These are paired with a seasonally changing collection of paintings and photographs by local artists. It's enough to make you feel as if you've stepped into a small museum.
Share cycles are a perfect way to enjoy the city. Their electric assistance makes hills an ease, so they're perfect for the mountain terrain of Hakodate.
There are many thin streets, inacessible by car, with wonderful shops to explore. You might just find your own private hideaway.
