The cemetery for foreigners was built in 1854 and is divided into areas based on the nationality or religious beliefs of the deceased. Inside the brick wall is a Chinese cemetery, and the opposite is a Russian cemetery. Cemeteries of different religious beliefs are adjacent to each other. They also face the large waves below, and the scenery is solemn and quiet.
This was originally a market where Chinese merchants traded seafood. It was later changed to a cemetery. It was built for the Chinese who died in Aomori before. It is not a scenic spot. It is recommended not to come here.
When it comes to cemeteries for foreigners, it must be felt that many barbarians were buried. In fact, most of them were Japanese people with Western religious beliefs at the end of the 19th century. As an important port for Japan to the outside world, Hakodate is a place where foreigners gather. In 1854, two sailors accidentally died and were buried here. Since then, this tomb area with tombstones of various countries has been established. Japan’s major ports such as Yokohama and Kobe have such areas, but at present, only Hakodate is still well-preserved. In addition to the distinctive tombstones here, the beautiful sea view is also an important reason for attracting many tourists.
There are tombstones on the slopes on both sides of the road. Inside the brick wall is a Chinese cemetery, and the opposite is a Russian cemetery. Cemeteries of different religions are adjacent to each other. They also face the undulating sea below. The tombstones are engraved with different names. , Years and the past, only the same "death" is rooted in their respective grounds. There have been a variety of longings, sorrows, and oaths, and they all disappear here. Only time has no end.
This Zhonghua Mountain Villa is not a tourist attraction, right? It is a cemetery for Chinese people. Next to the cemetery for foreigners, it is strange for Japanese people to be considered foreigners.
This is a cemetery for foreigners. It is really a cemetery for foreigners. Is there anything worth visiting here? I can't figure it out and don't understand it, so I don't bother with respect.
