“So high!” – “Woah!”

The first step of their journey was the Goryokaku Tower ! They could see the beautiful view of the city, and particularly of the Goryokaku Park, where stood the ancient fort built at the end of Edo period. It was first built to prevent a possible invasion from the Russian fleet, but was used as a defence against the imperialists. This is also the place where Hijikata Toshizo died, during the Meiji period in 1858 at the battle of Hakodate.
最初に訪れたのは五稜郭タワーでした!タワーからは綺麗な街の景色や,特に五稜郭公園がよく見えました.五稜郭は,江戸時代の終わりにロシアからの攻撃を防ぐために築かれましたが、幕府が終わった後は、旧幕府軍が天皇軍と戦うために使いました。また五稜郭は,新撰組の土方歳三が1858年の函館の戦いで死んだ場所としても有名です.


Thank you”
There was a corner to welcome visitors where they could take a picture to make a memory. Fujipon was happy to be welcomed by cute characters so he took a picture with them!

 “So cool!”“I’m scared…”

Fujipon enjoyed their historical visit, as well as the tourists attractions!

“Big bro!“Let’s go!” – “Friends!”

Near the gift shop,Fujipon met the Goryokaku character named “Gota-kun”. Because his face was the same than Fujipon, he thought that Gota-kun was his big-bro, so he jumped into his arm( ^∀^)
As he made some friends along the way, he ended his visit of the tower by shopping in the lobby.
お土産屋さんの近くで,ふじぽんはごーたくんという,五稜郭タワーのキャラクターと会いました.彼の顔はふじぽんと全く同じだったので,ふじぽんはごーたくんのことをおにいちゃんだと思って飛びつきました( ^∀^)
五稜郭タワーで何人もの友達と会いました.最後にふじぽんはロビーにあるお土産屋さんで少し買い物をしました.
