Just as there are red brick warehouses in Yokohama, Hakodate, which opened its port under the same treaty, still has a group of warehouses built with red bricks. The Kanemori Red Brick Warehouses were built in the early 1900s, just like the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouses. The Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse was built in 1911, and the current Kanamori Red Brick Warehouse was built in 1909. It seems that using red bricks to build fire-resistant warehouses was the most advanced technology of the time.

That is not the only similarity. The warehouse has completed its role as a warehouse with the passage of time and is now living a second life, just like Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse. Both the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, which was a bonded warehouse, and the Kanamori Red Brick Warehouse, which was a business warehouse of the Kanamori Western Goods Store, are no longer used as warehouses. They have been renovated as historical buildings and transformed into tourist attractions.

Yes, the area around the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse has been renovated. The area around the Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse seems to have become a bit of a fashionable spot in Hakodate, and there are many tourists walking around. Although the cab driver lamented the lack of tourists due to COVID-19 pandemic, a good number of tourists come to Hakodate and visit the warehouses by the sea. Some of them were couples looking out at the sea in a friendly manner.
