Beschreibung

View of Mt. Hakodate and the Tsugaru Strait from the observatory.
The resplendent star shape can be seen in the grounds of Goryokaku Fort, a special historic spot.
The Goryokaku is a western-style fort completed almost 150 years ago. A magnificent panoramic view of the entire star-shaped estate and surrounding moat unveils itself to visitors from the observation platform of the 107-metre Goryokaku Tower, which stands adjacent to the fort. Enjoy a bird's-eye view of the huge star-shaped fortress from the adjoining Goryokaku Tower Observatory. Next, we will go to Bugyosho, showcasing traditional Japanese architectural mastery. It is a restored building that was once used as a government office run by samurai. While visitors are free to contemplate its statuesque dignity from the outside, it is also possible to go inside and explore the rooms. Don't miss the opportunity to see the craftsmanship showcased in the exquisite Japanese-style architecture of this building, in addition to the wonderful wood-fragranced entrance and expansive tatami rooms. On this tour, we can find a bronze statue of a seated Toshizo Hijikata, a legend in Japanese history, on the second floor of the Goryokaku Tower.
