On our way out of Hokkaido, we stopped at the Pacific seaside town of Hakodate. Each morning the street in front of Hakodate station comes alive with an open air seafood and farmers market teaming with King Crab, squid, shrimp, fish, octopus, and fresh melon, grapes, and other produce. Jon and I stopped to check out the town whose mascot is the squid.
We continued on the train through the longest underwater train tunnel in the world connecting the islands of Hokkaido and Honshu (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/buildingbig/wonder/structure/seikan.html)
and on to the city of Yokohama, right outside of Tokyo.
