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 August to enjoy your elegant tea break while looking at beautiful roses painting the courtyard red.
