Fukuyama Castle (Matsumae Castle)松前城・松前城資料館
Fukuyama Castle (Matsumae Castle) is Japan’s northernmost castle, constructed in 1854. Matsumae Castle was built to protect Japan from the many foreign ships that appeared off the coast at that time. Part of the Matsumae castle was destroyed by fire in 1949 where a fierce battle of the Boshin War had once occurred. The tower and three stories of the castle were restored in 1961. The Honmaru Gate was designated as a National Important Cultural Property, and a selection of artifacts and many other historical materials are on display.

Hokkaido Main Areas
Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
