Trappistine Monasteries, Hakodate

3.3
Visit Japan's first Catholic convent at Trappistine Monasteries. Established in 1898, construction finished on the current building in 1927, culminating in a distinctly European architectural style, with both Gothic and Romanesque features. A number of information panels around the grounds detail the history of the site and the story of Catholicism in the country, though entrance to the building itself is not permitted. Eighty nuns live a self-sufficient life on the site, selling sweets to make a living, so pick up some of the sweet treats available, including Madeleines and butter candies.

  • I heard that can see the rare women's monastery. Did hairemasenn only shop for the winter season I think it is worth a go, knowing the location of the monastery of Trappist system in the solemn atmosphere (where you can see the summer there is limited) and the Japan. I appreciate anything else religious woman's homemade sweets were sold. Hokuto city men's Abbey and Trappist butter candy and cookies are available widely Madalena (Madeleine) of the convent here, "sister homemade cookies" only here really can't afford. What does the press say are "sister homemade cookies". Come try taste once in a lifetime.

  • Piscine is a women's monastery. Pistes are of Hakodate near Oshima this is a men's monastery. At airports and a souvenir shop selling butter candy and cookies are made of men's monastery. Trappistine monastery butter candy not sold only here. The candy itself slightly butter-coloured, very delicious. I like you.

  • Evangelism is of Cistercian women's monastery was approved at the end of the 11-century France and Japan. And there is a bus to the airport from the city may stop ago the bus is 1 hour one so not go making plans in advance. Acre is in the tourist to visit inside the monastery.

Where to stay in Hakodate

Look close to the main train station for the majority of accommodations in Hakodate. The large city offers a great deal of variety when it comes to places to stay, with the downtown area featuring everything from chain hotels, to luxury boutiques, to dormitory-style lodgings in youth hostels. A cluster of particularly well-maintained hotels and guesthouses with onsite "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) sits just to the west of Nezaki Park, with many rooms offering extensive views of the sea, or the canals that make their way inland.
