Old British Consulate of Hakodate reviews
I used to live in Yamaguchi-ken, which boasts it's own former British consulate. Obviously, upon discovering that Hakodate had one too, I had to pay it a visit while I was in the area. It has a small garden, with a fountain and a smart little restaurant. There is also a gift shop where you can buy British-y things, should the desire take you. It is set in a very nice area of Hakodate where you can stroll around for a few hours taking in the Japanese-cum-European architecture.
Beautiful historic British inspired building preserve well. Can buy London/British iconic stuffs here ;-)
