Passing by Mount Hakodate and the Motomachi District, your air conditioned coach will bring you to Fort Goryokaku. This enormous, pentagonal, moated fortress was completed in the last days of the Edo period, and is steeped in fascinating history, including a major rebellion during the Meiji Restoration.

Today the Fort is a public park, and a photographer’s paradise, prized for its fine cherry trees and breathtaking backdrops.

Located in the heart of the park is the Hakodate Magistrate’s office, with beautiful interiors show-casing an alternative side to the history of Hakodate.
