Former British Consulate of Hakodate

History of Hakodate, an open port city

The former British Consulate on Motoizaka Slope in Hakodate was built in 1859 when Hakodate opened its ports to international trade and is one of the many well-kept remnants of the 19th-century Western influence in southern Hokkaido. The consulate currently serves as a memorial hall and a living recreation of how the offices were designed at the time. The afternoon tea plan at the café inside is a popular option for guests hoping to sup genuine British tea and baked goods in a vintage Victorian atmosphere. Visit from June to Aug. to enjoy your elegant tea break while looking at beautiful roses painting the courtyard red.
