First to Review

A huge, star-shaped fort built to protect the Tsugaru Strait from possible Russian invasion. It is famous for its location of the last battle of the Boshin War in 1869. Take a trip up the Goryokaku Tower for a full view. Absolutely beautiful! As a note of caution, we went during the winter and visibility from the tower during a snow storm was low. I heard it's best to go during the early spring for Cherry Blossom viewing.

函館の定番観光スポット五稜郭。高さ107mの五稜郭タワーからは五稜郭の特徴である星型の全景を見ることができます。展望台には五稜郭の歴史を学べるパネル展示や、1階には北海道の名産物や五稜郭のオリジナルグッズを購入できるお土産やさんも入っています。
五稜郭公園の散策も気持ちがイイですが、ぜひタワーの展望台からきれいな星型を見ていただきたいです。
1階アトリウムには五稜郭のキャラクターGO太くんが登場します。スケジュールはオフィシャルホームページでチェックしてみてください。

函館の観光名所、五稜郭です。五稜郭タワーに登れば、五稜郭を一望できます。歴史や自然が好きな方は、タワーに登って歴史を学び、その後に五稜郭を一周することをお勧めします。

五稜郭タワーから五稜郭を観ることができます。
その形はとても綺麗で整った形の五角形です。
そもそもこの星型の堀は函館奉行所を守るための要塞として
作られています。
この形により死角をなくし攻撃をしやすくし、入口がどこかを
分かりづらくしているそうです。
広々とした五稜郭内には当時の建築方法で再建した函館奉行所もあり、当時の奉行所内の様子や五稜郭の歴史がわかります。
