It was a perfect fair tut un man-made. The streams happened to be familiar. Behind the mask we were able to sing well.

You can say that in order to attend a comic church. Komia Church.

Gorgeous, one of the largest churches in Finland. Cemetery nicely tidy already in spring. Worth to see.

The most beautiful church I've seen. A beautiful urn grove, a fine stone pile, gets a nameplate when handing over the graveyard

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.
