Foreigners’ Cemetery外国人墓地

Other Historic Site/Building

The “Foreigners’ Cemetery” is located on a hill overlooking Hakodate Bay. After the opening of the port in the late Edo period many people from overseas came in and out of Hakodate and many of them died here never returning to their homeland. The first to be buried were two American sailors from Perry’s fleet and since then many foreigners from countries such as England, Russia and China, etc. who died in Hakodate are buried here.

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
