Hakodate Bay Area 2 !

by Kazu

Remembering the warm and comfortable season in Hokkaido, here I post the photos of the bay area of Hakodate City. 
 Jogging around Hakodate Bay, you can find a variety of objects that show the history of Hakodate City. Before the tunnel under the seabed of Tsugaru Strait connected Hokkaido Island and the main island of Japan, ferry lines convey the people between the islands.
This is the ferry that conveyed the people between the islands. That was called "Seikan Renrakusen". One of the ship was wrecked and there were so many casualties at that time. Just after the accident, it was decided to built the tunnel under the seabed.
