  • This is a grand and stately building. When I walked through this museum, I could imagine myself being a noblewoman in the early 20th century. In fact, you can even rent costumes and dress like a noble person and walk the building. The view from the balcony was very nice. I really enjoyed visiting this place.
  • A beautiful building at Hakodate area. This is one of the largest historical building. Most beautiful without the snows.
  • A nice historic building. You have to pay for entrance fee.
  • Excellent, wearing costumes, good experience. However, the reception staff is horrible and felt bad last time we went 4:30, 4:20. Certainly "Wow!, now I'm-" that I often over takes. But you know we return 4:45 the last deadline is five. Time was tight. I.e. are you guys time with paid work in translation. Here are pay and enjoy the clean, well-bad response. Does not change regardless of the size of the pants. Reply not bad the first match, said Bon voyage not!, of lack of motivation. Is not what work experience for junior high school student who is better? Agerenai more than one star is good laughs as well as such in a Spartan, but is is right, at least I as a job.
