Goryokaku in Hakodate is a former Western-style fort built in 1866 in the form of a five-pointed star. Under the Kanagawa Treaty of 1854, Hakodate was one of the first ports to open itself up to international trade, and this fort was designed to defend against the possible imperial threat from the Western powers. After losing its military importance, the fort was changed into a public park in 1914.

With some 1,600 cherry trees lining its moats, this is a wonderful "bastion of flowers". The views from a paddleboat and a 107m-high tower is marvellous. The best season is between late April and early May.

Hakodate's crowning gem is the view of the harbor city at night from the top of Mr. Hakodate. Most believe that the view is not only one of the top three night views in Japan (the other two being Kobe and Nagasaki) but one of the top three in the entire world, competing with Hong Kong and Naples.

At night, the twinkling city lights on hourglass-shaped Hakodate contrast the dark water on both sides, and the black expanse of nearby sea, from June to December, is studded with lamps on squid fishing boats.

The daytime expansive vista is also spectacular. A ropeway takes you up to the top in three minutes. The mountain, with a height of 334m and a circumference of 9km, is not very big and shaped like a crouching cow seen from a distance.
