The star illumination of Goryokaku

五稜星の夢 / Hoshi no yume

Rough annual schedule
December 1st to late February
Fixed schedule
2021/1121 - 2022/02/28 * finished

The 1.8-km perimeter of the moat of a special historic site Goryokaku Fort is decorated with illumination to have its star shape stand out. You can command a bird's-eye view of the beautiful star shape when looking down on it from adjacent Goryokaku Tower. In mid winter, when snow accumulates on the frozen moat, the Goryokaku star spangles more brightly, and is especially beautiful. You can take an evening walk along the star-shaped perimeter. Lighting-up is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.


  • 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
