The time of Goryokaku pageant is arriving soon. You can find the posters here and there this year, too.
Goryokaku pageant which will take place at Goryokaku Park, a national special historic site, is being held this year too. This year sees the 16th times. It is said that the pageant was totally revised a few years ago, but after the revision, I've not seen the revised one. So this year I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Before the revision, I saw the pageant once and I participated it as a cast twice in a couple of years, 5 or 6 years ago, I believe. Both seeing and acting on the stage were extremely interesting.
Once there was a rumor that the pageant would be given up, but I hope this pageant will be supported and loved by citizens and add attraction to summer in Hakodate.

Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
