If you are walking towards the mountain or the Cape you can make a quick stop to this Memorial Burial

Beautiful monument nestled at the base of the mountains. You can read about why it was built in English or Japanese.

Magnificent old stone monument to the Tokugawa Shogunate warriors who died during the Hakodate war. The monument is nestled in a beautifully lush forest and the path through the forest is lined with wild flowers in the spring. Definitely worth the short walk through the forest to get there.

If you're near Hakodate Hachiman Shrine, stop by this small memorial to the fallen warriors of the Boshin War. This is perfect for the Shinsengumi buffs or any Hakuouki fans.

This is truely an heavenly corner worthy to be visited in late spring (may). The path to reach it is colored by so many flowers and you can enjoy a nice walk through the silent nature to go there. There is a rest area and a small yard with a monument dedicated to Shinsengumi members who died in the Hakodate war. Recommended to Shinsengumi's hard fans and people who wish to escape the tourists crowds of the most visited tourist spots of Hakodate. * It's a little far from the closest tram station, you have to walk for a good while to reach it.
