star

3.8 (398)

25-4 Hinodechō, Hakodate, Hokkaido 040-0022, Japan

This facility stands next to Takuboku Sho Koen (Takuboku Mini Park) along Omori Beach on the Tsugaru Strait. It features a wide array of exhibits on the lives of the warrior Toshizo Hijikata and the poet Takuboku Ishikawa, both of whom were closely related with Hakodate. Many exhibits on the first floor focus on the life of Toshizo Hijikata, who was the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, a special police force organized by the Tokugawa shogunate, and who was killed in the Battle of Hakodate, and on activities of people in the last days of shogunate rule.

It's fine if you want to kill time, but if you like history, you should definitely go. I will write the reason below. ・Explanations of exhibits do not serve as explanations. Not only is there too much content based on speculation rather than fact, but there are also many sentences that are incomprehensible to Japanese, where the subject and predicate are at odds. This should not happen if the captions were created using reliable literature and materials that were studied seriously. Therefore, what is written cannot be trusted and is of no use at all. ・Only unrelated materials Most of the exhibits in the main building are Hijikata Toshizo's belongings and weapons used in the Hakodate War. People from overseas who are not used to seeing Japanese swords may be happy about this, but people who have seen the real thing at least once in a proper museum, or fans who came to learn about Toshizo Hijikata, are sure to be disappointed. there is no. ・The lights inside the building are strange The exhibits are difficult to see due to the strange colored light. As mentioned above, this facility has many problems. Of course, I would like people to refrain from going in the future, but even the 800 yen I paid felt like a loss, and it was difficult to think that it was just a cheap theme park like a simple haunted house. is. There are better museums and sightseeing spots in Hakodate. I sincerely hope that they don't continue this rotten business that insults people.

I didn't read the reviews before visiting. I stopped by purely because of the fun. Haha. Entrance fee is 800¥. He will go up to the 2nd floor to watch a documentary(?) that tells the history. But it's all in Japanese. I don't understand at all. Just look at the picture. The display of swords and various weapons is on the first floor. Personally, I don't know much about the history, but I like looking at it. The space isn't very big. It takes about 30-40 minutes to walk around and see it all.

It's a bit boring. The introduction videos are all in Japanese and I can't understand them. The sea view is beautiful

I didn't enter the museum, I just used the parking lot to take a closer look at the scenery from around here. I can't afford to spend 800 yen on a museum about a person I have almost no interest in. Windsurfers also seemed to be using this parking lot. The view from here is good, so go to that part ⭐︎3
