  • I went in the off-season. Outside temperature was minus 2 degrees winter. Obsolete buildings and saw the room was cold it is. There is heating was not working too much. Garden was buried in snow. It would be good to visit the rose blooming season. Our United Kingdom tea and cakes in the tea rooms and delicious. Borrow also the bracket. Time and was delighted. Adult healing time. Also, want to go in the season.

  • Hakotade is one of Japan’s first ports to open to the outside world at the end of the Edo era, hosts a number of 19th-century foreign consulates at the Motomachi district’s hills, and this old building was used as the British Consulate from 1913 to 1934, which now is a historical memorial site.
  • Beautiful old building with spacious rooms and great views over Hakodate. Very nice historical area for walking.
