2012 Locations Access

Starting with the main Motomachi Park site, WMDF 005 has public events in four main locations in August, plus the City Concert Hall in June.



Motomachi Park: See The Stars!

12 Motomachi, Hakodate-shi, Hokkaido
005回WMDF Main Site (Click for a full-size image)
Key to Area Names:
A Atlas: Supporter of the world, "enduring"
B Bunda: One of the three "luck of lucks" stars。
C Chara:Greek "joy", our wish
D Deneb:Arabic "the follower", for all our followers
E Eudora: Greek "generous", our hope.

Motomachi Park Artists are WMDF's main stars. But Motomachi Park is a contender too. WMDF's themes of "Big Here" and "Long Now" led us to the new names for the park's festival areas: stars are some of the biggest, furthest away, and oldest objects that we can see. The star names we chose are above, but everyone will also recognise "A", "B", "C", "D" and "E".

Hakodate Community Design Center ("Machi-Tsukuri Center")

MTC 4-19 Suehiro-cho, Hakodate-shi, Hokkaido
Located in the renovated shell of the former Marui Imai department store, this center was opened in 2007 to support community development and promote tourism. The WMDF Festival Office is located here, and the center also hosts the WMDF Experience! workshops. If you have a chance, please admire its nostalgic night illumination.

Hotel Hakodateyama

Hotel Hakodateyama 19-1 Motomachi, Hakodate-shi, Hokkaido, Japan
Join us at Hotel Hakodateyama for our “Arigatou” Staff Concert/Farewell Party on the last day. 2012 is the first year of WMDF's association with Hotel Hakodateyama, so we will be marking it in style. Sponsor Pass holders are also admitted to this party for free (first-come, first-served), and if you collect a sticker each day at Motomachi Park, you get a free drinks ticket to boot.

City Concert Hall ("shimin kaikan")

City Concert Hall 1-32-1 Yunokawa-cho, Hakodate-shi, Hokkaido
This 1,500 seater hall was designed to serve multiple functions as a meeting place and a focal point for the cultural life of Hakodate. It has staged classical, pop, and a wide range of popular events. WMDF has used it for finale Showpiece Galas, and this year it served as the venue for the Opening Live Tour (June).
