InformationInformation

Trappistine Convent is Japan's oldest convent founded by the nuns from France in 1898. The current red-brick building was constructed in 1927 after destroyed several times by storm and fire.
You cannot go inside the building because the Trappistine sisters lead a devout religious life there, but the convent allows visitors to enter the museum and the front yard of the convent, which is a lovely arrangement of flower-beds.
