This attraction is certainly unusual! A star shaped building on top of a very tall tower . On ground level there are interesting shops, coffee bar and snacks. The elevator travels very quickly to the ...
To access the Goryokaku Tower, you can either take a Hakodate bus and alight at the Goryokaku Koen Iriguchi bus stop and walk 7 minutes or a Hakodate tram and get off at the Goryokaku Koen Mae Tram st...
The Hakodate tour of the Goryokaku is generally seen down the tower. The tower is 98 meters high and is the best location to look at the Goryokaku. There are two observatories inside the tower, and the historical cloister uses comics and scene models to show the history of Goryokaku. On the ground floor, the earth's three-year-old bronze statue is quite handsome. The most beautiful time is when the cherry blossoms bloom, and it looks like a pink cloud. It is a pity that it is not this time to come here twice.
Five Goryeo was built in 1864 and experienced the turmoil of the late Shogunate to the beginning of the Meiji era. This star fortress originated in Europe in the 16th century and can be seen in many parts of Europe.
The tower is an interactive museum, telling a story of the fort and providing a great view on the surroundings. Great if you're into history. Make the time to visit the tower is you are in Hakodate. This lovely little port is graced with a number of attractions. The tower provides a 360 degree eagle-eye view of the city, including the Goryokaku Park, a beautiful and unusually shaped piece of land originally built to be a fort. The day of our visit was apparently the busiest of the year but, despite the queues, it was a lovely day and the crowds added to the ambience. Definitely worth the visit. The crowds were efficiently and effectively managed.
The Goryokaku Tower is located near the entrance to the southwestern edge of Goryokaku Park. It overlooks the star-shaped city of Goryokaku Park and offers a view of the Hakodate and Tsugaru Straits in the distance. There is also an exhibition hall, gift shop and restaurant introducing the history of Goryokaku. The Goryokaku Tower is not only a great place to see the Goryokaku Park, but also to see different landscape changes throughout the year.
