This is a female monastery quietly nestled in the heights of the countryside of Hokkaido. It once collapsed overnight due to a huge storm in 1903, and was rebuilt with bricks two years later. The building is impressive as it’s designed with Gothic and Romanesque features such as brick exterior walls and windows with semicircular arches.
