Japan 2nd trip 2nd day, Sep 18th, Hakodate & Noboribetsu Marine Park Nixe - Hokkaido

Day 2 morning, we went to Hakodate Asaichi (morning market) to see and try a famous Hokkaido crab. As usual, they are very expensive!!!

and this is our crab, huge !!!

with extra some sea urchin

They cook for us and this mine, fried crab fingers

This is my wife's one, raw meet with udon. Pretty nice actually as you can taste the sweetness of crab meet.

After feeling full, we continued our journey to Goryokaku Fort. This is a star fort in the city of Hakodate in southern Hokkaidō. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

As usual while OTW we saw some interesting view, such as Hokkaido police car. It looks like a matchbox for me.

City view

And these are the Goryokaku Fort view from a tower.

Still remember this?

This is the restaurant, Lucky Pierrot. It's located opposite of the Fort.

Hmmm... I don't what she's looking at ...

We continued to go to Noboribetsu Marine Park Nixe. Features an aquarium that has been modeled on a north European medieval castle actually in existence.15,000 living organisms of 400 different species are maintained and kept on display.Aside from the dolphin and sea lion shows, there is a penguin parade on show twice daily.

Somethings interesting are there is not many people in Noboribetsu, we were wondering where they are. 

An interesting board

Finally we arrived and this is the park map.

BTW, this is not an office but just a TOILET !!!

The main castle

Quite spooky, isn't?

Took picture first before it's going to be dark.

Penguin parade

Take a break with Hokkaido soft ice cream ... yummy...

continue ...
