Goryokaku Park, Hakodate

(3.9/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Visit the historic site of Goryokaku Park, a former fortress in the shape of a five-pointed star. Built in the 1850s, the fort owes its curious shape to Ayasaburo Takeda, who designed it to optimize defence and gun placement. Roam the fort complex, a public park since 1914, and take a relaxing walk along the moat, lined with lush cherry blossom trees. Climb to the top of the 100 m (328 ft) tall observation tower to enjoy panoramic views of the fort and its surroundings. A visit to Goryokaku Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hakodate vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Now is the time when I visited history discovery tours box Museum magistrate's Office, as well as enjoy the contrast of the white snow and the blue sky, and the trees. I thought that the cherry blossoms are blooming in the spring once again wanted to visit another time.

  • 上一次来是夏天,登塔看见一片绿。这次在雪后,一个美丽的白色五角星⭐️静静地呈现在眼前,别有一番风味。它的历史和建筑上的特色值得一看。春天开满樱花也特别美。  more »
  • 春天到哪裡看櫻花, 可以選擇來函館的五棱郭公園, 你可搭上五棱郭塔往下看, 更是美, 護城河形成五棱角更是有它文化歷史的意義.  more »
