Hakodate Bugyosho, Hakodate
(3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
A star-shaped fort protects Hakodate Bugyosho, used as a government building when Japan gave up its isolationist policy and started to open up to the world in the mid-19th century. Now a museum enclosed by maple trees, two centuries ago the structure served as a diplomatic and bureaucratic center of the shogunate. Take a guided tour and roam through the minimalist rooms, designed in the typical Japanese style. Leaflets and info boards provide useful details for English-speaking visitors.

  • In the middle of the goryokaku, central tower is to make distinctive. Admission 500 yen in no time and then not buying advance information so just look at home.
