Up with the lark for train to Hakodate. 82DSC03685.jpg

Train system slightly (!) different to home... struck again by the contrast between the ultra modern and extremely traditional. The lady bring the snack service/trolley dolly & ticket inspectors bow on entering the carriage, when they greet you (as many people do) & on leaving the carriage.

Reached Hakodate 3hrs40mins after our prompt departure. Hot and rainy, we bowed to the backpack's pressure and took the tram with the school children to our hotel.

Enjoyed a great stroll through the town - a funny juxtposition of touristy port town (hakodate factory - fantastic if touristy food shop - wish there was one on our corner, had fresh bbq'd scallop for 300yen - less than £2. :)) ), and something like an american backwater town. Enjoyed a great hike up in the drizzle and saw some fantastic shrines.

Curry & squidballs for dinner - a great way to round of the day. We followed our noses to find the curry restaurant, tucked down a little side street. The other customers were mainly businessmen, who promptly ordered, scoffed their choice & were off again within 15mins or so. Fast food, but not as we know it.squidballs.jpg

we're gradually working our way through the foods here: http://howtojapan.blogspot.com/2005/10/what-food-should-i-try-in-japan.html
