Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse Reviews
函館観光では外せない有名な金森倉庫群です。赤れんがの倉庫群は写真の絶好の場所ですね。と言っても倉庫の中はどれも特徴がなく土産物売り場やアイスクリーム売り場ですべて占められていると言ってよいのかな。倉庫群の中にある食堂「きくや食堂」で夕食をとったが料金はリーズナブルでイカ刺身をはじめ北海道の料理を味あうことができるのでお勧めです。 more »It is a famous Kanamori warehouse group which cannot be removed by hakodate sightseeing. The red brick warehouse swarm is a great place for photography. However, it may be said that there are not all the features in the warehouse, and all are occupied in the souvenir shop and the ice cream section. We had dinner at the restaurant "Kuya-shokudo" in the warehouse group, but the price is reasonable, and it is recommended because it is possible to taste hokkaido's dishes including squid sashimi.
函館港内にいくつかの赤レンガ倉庫が並んでおり、それぞれの建物内部は、種々Shops、Restaurantがたくさんあり、時間を忘れてしまうくらい、楽しい。今回はあまり時間がなかったが、次回は、たっぷり時間を取り、クルーズなども楽しみたい。 more »There are several red brick warehouses in Hakodate Port, and the interior of each building is a lot of Shops and restaurants, and it's fun to forget the time. I didn't have much time this time, but next time I want to take plenty of time and enjoy cruises.
Nice warehouse with potential, but the selection of goods for sale is poor and focused on budget tourists. This would be an opportunity to offer real quality produce from the region, but most items are cheap and tasteless. Very sad to see. I hope and wish that the owner would manage this great venue more responsibly.
Great atmosphere, at least around Christmas time. A few spots are worth checking out (especially Snaffles, though do note that the cafe next door is not theirs and so if you want to sit and eat Snaffles cheesecakes, you’ll need to at least buy some coffees at the cafe), but most of the shops inside are touristy rubbish. Can also get packed with your groups, though that seemed to come and go in waves.
