Our taxi driver/guide from yesterday said this was one of the three scenic spots of Hakodate (of course it wouldn't really make any sense in English but just trust me on it). This is Hakodate's new horse racing track.

At the entrance to the convent, you are first greeted by this angel. Actually, you are not allowed inside the convent, only certain areas. What this place is well known for is their homemade cookies and butter, which is only sold here at the convent.

While I was still enjoying reading the history about the convent, my mother and sister said they were off to the shop nearby for some of Hakodate's best tasting ice cream. And as majority rules, I had to cut my history lesson short and had some ice cream myself.
The shop selling ice-cream. If you take a close look, you can see my mother, wife, and sister coming out of the place with their ice-cream cones in hand.
