This is Goryokaku Tower in front of Goryokaku Park. It is another place in Hakodate that must be climbed up and overlooked besides Mount Hakodate. Only on the viewing platform of Goryokaku Tower can you see the complete five-pointed star pattern in Goryokaku Park. In the tower, there are some history about the interaction between Hakodate and the West, and the architectural introduction of Goryokaku Park.
Goryokaku Tower is the best place to overlook the star-shaped castle of Goryokaku. But in the eyes of everyone, the star-shaped city is the same, but in my husband's eyes, I feel like a tortoise. I really admire his imagination. But after a few more glances, I also feel like a tortoise. At the top of the tower, in addition to the watchtower, there are some small character models that review some scenes of the year. There is also a souvenir shop downstairs, where you can choose some postcards and some cute gadgets.
