Hakodate or Kikonai to Matsumae Castle

Hi all,

We are going from Sapporo to Tokyo via JR Pass in May 2017. However, as we found from research online that Matsumae Castle is a fantastic spot for Sakura Viewing, we would like to stop by before going to Tokyo. We would like to find out if:

1) There is any luggage storage at Kikonai Station

2) The time table from Kikonai and Hakodate to Matsumae Castle and vice versa

3) Kikonai or Hakodate to Matsumae Castle? Which is preferred?

Thank you all in advance.

There are coin locker at Kikonai road station(nearby JR station).




You should take a bus to "松前出張所",and "平日" means weekday,"土曜・日曜・祝日" means Sat,Sun,and public holiday.


Kikonai is more accessible to Matsumae than Hakodate.

Hakodate has only 3 direct buses per a day,but Kikonai has 10 of them.
