I spent the whole of the second day at the conference (of course!). The kids and their father went to explore Hakodate town, the fish market and the port after they had their breakfast.

When the warehouse was closed, we headed to Mount Hakodate. The night view from Mount Hakodate was rated three stars by The Michelin Green Guide Japan
Journeys up to and down from Mount Hakodate were via cable cars (they called it ropeway). Travelling time from the base station (Sanroku station) to the top station (Sancho station) took less than five minutes. It was freezing cold of course. We didn't linger there for the sake of the kids. We had been out for quite a long time already for the night.
