Winter in Japan

Category

The Goryokaku in Hakodate, Hokkaido Japan is one of the popular tourist destinations year round. In spring, the 1,600 cherry trees surrounding a unique star-shaped western fortress makes it a desirable spring holiday destination for those who love flowers. In the winter, the whole park, fortress and the frozen moat is covered with snow, creating a beautiful pure white environment. The adjacent 170-meter tall Goryokau Tower is the best place to take a bird-eye view of the star-shape fortress and the Hakodate city. The day is very short in the winter, do arrive early if you want to take photos from the best spot because it gets very crowded particularly on a good day.
