waste place they throw hail cartridges into the lake that we have found when we have paddled a kayak, very unpleasant to see !!

A great place that I accidentally found. Sweden has its own specific climate, the beauty of which can be found almost everywhere and you don't need hundreds of billboards and thousands of advertisements

Alt var lukket så der var ingen adgang til selve slottet. Man kunne gå en lille tur ved søen og ikke andet. Men flot område.

Everything was closed so there was no access to the castle itself. You could go for a walk by the lake and nothing else. But nice area.

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
