A beautiful fir tree sent from Hakodate sister city Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada again this year is displayed on the water. Standing 20 meters high and decorated with more than 100,000 lights, this gigantic fir adds splendor to the ocean in front of historic Red Brick Warehouses and brings a Christmas atmosphere to the area. A soup bar is open during the festival to offer original recipes inspired by the local and foreign cultures that mingled freely when Hakodate was a bustling port city.
