Last Japanese Style Castle Built in Japane -Ruins of Tate Castle in Assabu-

November 17th, 2016

Ruins of Tate Castle (舘城跡) are the last castle of Matsumae clan (松前氏) in Assabu town located in the northwestern part of Hakodate city. It is said to be the last Japanese style castle in Japan in the Edo period. In the Meiji Restoration (明治維新), it was attacked by the old Shogunate forces and the castle from construction was fallen for 75 days. Now there are only clay walls at that time, but cherry trees and chestnut trees are planted in the ruins of the Tate Castle, and it is known for enjoying the cherry blossoms in a spring. Tatejoato Festival (館城跡まつり) is held on the second Sunday in June, and visitors can enjoy the stage of Hakodate war. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There are not facilities.
