Trappistine Monasteries, Hakodate

(3.1/5 based on 340 reviews on the web)
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. Use our Hakodate vacation builder to add Trappistine Monasteries and other attractions to your Hakodate vacation plans.

  • 冬季到訪一片白雪襯著歐式建築彷彿置身歐洲,修道院僅開放外部庭園供參觀,這裡最有名的是外面店家販售許多人津津樂道稱全日本最香濃好吃的牛奶冰淇淋,牛奶味濃而香醇,若到此一遊建議一定要試試看。 
  • All attractions from equipped Museum and shop. And going up the stairs overlooking the landscaped gardens located in the buildings of the monastery. It became feelings that people cannot be visited inside the monastery, so look at this building, at this time living in the monastery, so I couldn't say. Then as it happens is a citizen volunteer guides here, it is and we can talk hear is great. This day, and from this location was also the shimokita peninsula, as the weather is good. I usually feel the Mainland's Northeast familiar to people of Hakodate and what I thought.

  • Main street of Hakodate mountain walk slowly and climb near the Summit site in its beautiful church. It was a disciplined and demanding "trappistine monastery" male Continence sister school. Building with splendid gardens, overlooking the sea of Hakodate from here and it was great.
