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.

  • It was a fine day, and i was able to see the origin of Joan of Arc in France with a refreshing feeling of sublime. In the facility, we could see the screws of sakura trees, and the flow of time was quiet and silent.

  • It was a little far from Hakodate station, but there was also time, so I went there. Because the cookie that the sister who was able to buy only there had been sold, I bought some. I haven't eaten it yet, but it looks very delicious!
