Memorial Statue of the Visit of Commodore Matthew C. Perry to Hakodate
Perry valued Hakodate Port as “just as fine as any other port in the world” and recorded that the lives of people were affluent and even looked luxurious (Narrative of The Expedition of an. American Squadron to the China Seas and Japan). There is a statue of standing Perry in Motomachi Park, Hakodate.
