Crawling up this slope to the hillside of Mt. Hakodate may be a little bit tough for seniors and even for youngsters who don't like exercise.
But I think that jogging up to the old uptown area of the port city is worth while and rewarding. The atmosphere is peculiar to the historic city and high end residential area.
This old wooden residence was owned by the Somas and open to the visitors and citizens. Everybody can inhale the air inside the wooden residence and imagine the area when the residence had been used as an actual house for the Somas.
