Hakodate Station Guide

Hakodate Station (函館駅 Hakodate-eki) is the main railway station in Hakodate, Hokkaido. It is the terminal station on the Hakodate Main Line operated by JR Hokkaido. It is also a key transport hub in southwest Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost main island. Rebuilt in 2016, it provides access to the city of Hakodate itself and serves as a gateway to the island as Hokkaido Shinkansen bullet train services from Tokyo and other points south end at nearby Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station.

Outside Hakodate Station, you’ll find streetcar, bus and taxi services to visit sights in the city. Inside the station, there are travel, shopping and dining facilities. This article will introduce the station layout and its features.
