Goryokaku Park, Hakodate
(3.9/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • 五陵郭公園是早前由一個很獨特五芒星狀城墎改建而成,如果遊客想看美麗五芒星還是要登上五陵郭塔。城墎上種植很多樹木,11月去時,樹木葉子已紛紛變色,如果有時間,有很多小小石梯可以登上城墎頂近距離欣賞這些樹木。 
  • It is a castle in the Boshin war, and appeared in the acclaimed historical Pentagon. Has come out now and restore buildings at that time in the Castle and castle-like atmosphere. You can also see clearly the goryokaku near goryokaku Tower views the entire castle made of.
