We enjoyed this beautiful park in Hakodate. It's unique shape and design, combined with the history and restored traditional buildings, and the heavy stone walls make this an interesting place. You can walk right around the outside or Criss cross through from the various bridges....More

This is a very pleasant, spacious park for walking around. Fortunately, entrance into the park by itself is free, and even though there are quite a lot of tourists, the park is sufficiently large that a quiet place is easy to find. There are also...More

Nice park to walk around. We were in the park to search for some geocaches, but some areas were unfortunately closed due to construction works.

We were in Hakodate on a cruise during the first week of May. We had first toured southern Japan, thus we had missed out on the cherry blossoms. But as we worked out way north we hoped that we would be in time to see...More

The history of this fort /park is provided at the top of the Goryokaku tower. We wish we had seen this in cherry blossom time, but was still a good place to walk around – not too crowded and delightful ona weekend day to see...More

Nice park with lots of greenery and beautiful scenery. Would be a great place for families with elderly and young children to run about or take a leisurely stroll. Otherwise, there isn't really much entertainment there.

The tower tour was informative with history of the battle of Hakodate and how the Goryokaku park was constructed. But a bit pricy for the entrance ticket. The audio tour to the Governor house was not worth the money.
