It was bitterly cold as we pulled into Hakodate this morning.... I put on my long johns and prepared for a look around the city. I was here back in 2007 so it was nice to return. My tour around was very nice with the visit to Goryokaku Tower being at the top of the list because of the views. I also enjoyed walking along the waterfront and checking out the shops in the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouses. It was a very nice, albeit a very cold day..... Less than 2 weeks to go.... depressing. I have a massage tomorrow to get over it.
