The snow was pretty thick and with the sun coming out, the place just looked beautiful. You can also took pics of the tower from the park. I really love the combination of white snow and blue sky. Beautiful💗

I was here during summer and the view from Goryokaku Tower is beautiful. It's one of the top places in Hakodate I've been wanting to visit and it's definitely worth it. You can learn and read more about the history of Goryokaku Park here.

Went to Goryokaku Park with tour group on a weekday. Not many people around the park so it was nice to walk around without the crowd. Air was very good, weather was fantastic, what more can I ask?😊

I like the view and the structure of the park. You can stroll along in the park especially with nice weather.

Unfortunately we were in a rush since we arrived at 1720, it was already dark, and they close at 1800. I am sure it would've been more worthwhile if we gave ourselves more time.

The fortress/park is about a 10 minute walk from the tram stop. On nearing the park one will pass by the Goryokaku Tower which for 840 yen will give a great view of the park and permit to grasp the strategy behind the complex layout...More
