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.

  • 非常特別的星形防禦工事建物,對於軍事迷或是歷史迷應該更是必訪景點。冬天造訪時一片雪白,十分美麗。建議如果有體力的話可以先繞城外護城河走一圈,體驗城內外的不同美感。城內種植了許多櫻花,春天來看應該會十分美麗。 
  • 特別的歷史建築,到訪時冬季白雪皚皚護城河都結冰,聽說園區內種植很多櫻花樹與紫藤花,春天到訪定別有風味,值得一看的景點。 
  • 對函館的印象除了函館山夜景,另一個就是星星形狀的五稜郭,不僅特別又是個四季都值得參觀的地方。冬天的五稜郭被白雪覆蓋,更有另一番風情,入夜後城牆會點燈,更像顆星星,很美。
