Hakodate, Hokkaido - Yunokawa Onsen

It may have just been in contrast to my long stretch of living in mega-city Tokyo, but Hakodate seemed at the time - and seems still now in memory - a bit like San Francisco to me; cool air slightly damp with a sea breeze, hills with old style houses from the late 1800's, city by a bay, less people density than Tokyo (of course!), clean air, relaxed atmosphere....

I'll try to get more pictures up, but for now, here are a few of part of the waterfront and also of the Yunokawa Onsen (hot springs) area:
