The drive to the monastery from Hakodate was very scenic along the coast and the road leading to the monastery was very nice as well. When we arrived we were one of two groups visiting. There is a relatively steep hill leading to the front gate but was well worth the hike. The building was lovely to look at and the view from the top of the hill was also nice. We enjoyed some ice cream made from the milk produced on site. It was very tranquil. It's a place that won't take long to look around but I highly recommend going by car.
