About this sight

Goryokaku is a 5-pointed star-shaped fortress built around 1860 to protect the Tsugaru Strait against possible Russian invasion. The place has been open to the public since 1914 as Goryokaku Park and it is one of the most famous spots in Hakodate, especially popular during the cherry blossom season.
