#2 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Hokkaido
Take a stroll through the streets of Motomachi, a neighborhood displaying a strong Western influence in its cuisine and stores. Centering around a five-block-long shopping street, the neighborhood started to develop its cosmopolitan style during the Meiji era, when the number of foreign residents drastically increased. Shops and businesses opened to cater to the tastes of those arriving from across Europe, including German bakeries, French chocolatiers, and European-style tailors that still operate to this day. Take a look at the sweet treats and clothes on offer and choose something to take away with you.
