Goryokaku Park is an iconic star-shaped fort located in Hakodate. The fortress was originally constructed in 1855 to protect Hokkaido and was the site of a civil war between the shogunate’s soldiers and the imperial troops of the Meiji government. Later in the 1910s, the area was converted into a public park, and today, it is recognized as a national special historic site.
