Hakodate: walking around/Прогулка по Хакодатэ

There are many tourist attractions in Hakodate within a walking distance from the train station. For those who come early for a meeting or a conference, the daily market opens at 5 in the morning (once you exit the train station, take a right and walk along the first street from the sea). It is a good place to get breakfast or souvenirs, as well as to see what this area is famous for.

В Хакодатэ есть много интересных мест куда можно дойти пешком прямо от вокзала. Для жителей и гостей города которые приехали рано утром, местный рынок открывается в 5 утра (от вокзала направо по первой улице вдоль моря). На рынке можно позавтракать, выбрать сувениры, или просто ознакомиться с образцами местной продукции.





The market sells a lot of fish. Almost every fish store sells squid. Squid is the symbol of Hakodate, the city even has its own special squid dance. If there is a group of people on a festival in Northern Japan dressed as squid or have squid symbols on their clothes, then it is more than likely that they are from Hakodate.

На рынке продается много всякой разной рыбы. Больше всего продается кальмаров. Кальмар -- символ Хакодатэ, в городе даже есть свой специальный кальмарный танец. Если где-нибудь в северной Японии на параде есть группа людей в костюмах кальмаров или с символами кальмаров, то с большой вероятностью можно сказать что они из Хакодатэ.


Some places sell live squid, they keep it in a special reservoir with sea water.

Для наглядности кое-где даже есть ванны с живыми кальмарами.


Further down the road there is a place called Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse. This shopping place does look like a bunch of warehouses from the outside, but each of the buildings (there are 6 buildings total) is very cozy on the inside and have many different souvenir shops, pastry shops, and restaurants.

После рынка можно увидеть здания похожие на склады (нет окон) из красного кирпича. Это торговый центр Канемори. Внутри этих складов уютно расположены магазины одежды, сувениров, кондитерские и даже небольшие рестораны.


The same area has a small square with four restaurants. Customers have a choice between ramen noodles, Chinese food, curry, and something else.

В этом же районе есть небольшая площадь четырех ресторанов. Желающие могут отведать на выбор лапшу, китайскую кухню, карри и что-то еще.


The ropeway to mount Hakodate is located nearby as well. The ticket is not too expensive, and getting to the top of the mountain takes about three minutes.

Канатная дорога на гору Хакодатэ также расположена недалеко. Билет наверх стоит не очень дорого, и подъем занимает три минуты.


Enjoy the views of Hakodate port while walking back towards the train station.

Вот такие виды открываются с холма если идти по направлению обратно к вокзалу.
