Esashi Oiwake Hall / Esashi Dashi Hall江差追分会館・江差山車会館
Esashi oiwake is music or poetry sung in praise of the people born and raised in the harsh surroundings of the northern lands. Esashi Oiwake Hall was built in 1982 in order to preserve this local culture. Inside the hall are rooms to practice singing, informative displays about esashi oiwake as well as a seminar room where you can learn all about this art. You can also see the floats used during the Togyosai ceremonial procession from Ubagami Daijingu Shrine. To get to Esashi Oiwake Hall takes about one and a half hours by car from Hakodate and about two hours by bus from JR Hakodate Station.

Hokkaido Main Areas
Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
