You have to be a special kind of city to think that insane videos of a giant squid / robot attacking and duking it out while destroying your beautiful, historic buildings is a great way to bolster tourism. World, meet Hakodate: their official tourism board has produced an amazing series of videos over the past few months that you really just have to see for yourself. Oh, did we mention that the videos worked? Yeah, we're totally there. Hit the read link for all three videos; our favorite, Hakodate's winter video, is after the break.
