Do you know that the garden of the Old British Consulate is open to public? You can go into the garden freely and now you can enjoy beautiful roses there. There is a rose-covered arch and visitors were taking picture with it. You can enjoy sweet fragrance, too. In this weekend, some wedding ceremonies may be taken place there.
Now the Old British Consulate is open to public as a museum that teaches you how Hakodate was when its port was opened to overseas. If you are interested, how about visiting the museum? The entrance fee is 300yen. If you are going to visit other historical buildings like Old Public Hall of Hakodate Ward, Museum of Northern peoples, or Museum of Literature, an excursion ticket for two or more facilities is economical.
At the nearby Motomachi Park, you can also enjoy roses now.
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
