Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse is a group of old warehouses near Hakodate Port.
It is located about 1.3 km southwest of JR Hakodate station.

The warehouses were built by Kanemori Warehouse company in 1909.
Trading in Hokkaido was very active at that time.

But warehouse business in this area had been declining since the middle of 20th century.

On the other hand, these warehouses were designated as historic buildings and were sometimes reported by the media.

So a part of the warehouses was changed to the facility with restaurants, shops and event halls.
Now this is one of most popular spots in Hakodate.

Large mark is written on the wall of each warehouse.
The sign of right angle is called "kane" and a kanji character is "mori".
It is the mark of the company.
