What people are saying:

The History about Ayasaburo Takeda and An American commodore M.C. Perry's fleet opening at Hakodate Port. He arrived at Uraga in 1853, demanded the Tokugawa shogunate to open its door to the rest of the world. Succumbing to the threat of force from the enormous 'black ships", the shogunate concluded the Treaty of Peace and Army between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan in 1854 and decided to open the ports of Shimoda in Izu and Hokodate.

    Interesting star shaped park

    The star shaped park is a major attraction of Hakodate and indeed looking at it from the tower is an interesting experience. There are also exhibits to showcase the history of the fort.
