Many handwritten materials by Takuboku Ishikawa are on display. This quaint building was built in 1921 as the Hakodate Branch of Daiichi Bank, and is a three-story brick and reinforced concrete building that was later donated to the city. If you want to see surrounding facilities at the same time, you can save a little money by purchasing a combined ticket. If you wish to enter two or more of the following four facilities: Hakodate City Northern Ethnic Museum, Hakodate City Literature Museum, Hakodate City Former British Consulate, and Former Hakodate Ward Public Hall, you can use the common ticket at the reception desk of each facility according to the number of facilities you wish to enter. You can buy it at

Haven't the exhibits changed in the past 2-30 years? I love Takuboku, so I always check it out when I visit Hakodate, and it's always the same. The first floor is a corner for writers from Hakodate, so it won't be updated unless a new writer emerges from Hakodate. Since there are so many of them, I wonder if there could be a special exhibition that collects them?

The first floor introduced writers from or connected to Hakodate, and the second floor was the Takuboku floor. The structure is a little similar to the Fukuyama Literature Museum, which features local authors on the first floor and Masuji Ibuse on the second floor.

As it happened, there were no other customers, so I was able to get a detailed tour from the staff. He not only taught us about writers with ties to Hakodate, including Takuboku Ishikawa, but also recommended sightseeing spots. I liked that there was a set ticket that included the nearby Old Hakodate Ward Public Hall, Old British Consulate, and Northern Folklore Museum.
