Matsumae Castle Museum
On June 5, 1949, the wooden tower of Matsumae Castle, also known as Fukuyama Castle, which had been designated as a national treasure, burned down from the sparks of a fire that broke out at the town office. Subsequently, a Hokkaido-wide movement for castle tower reconstruction spearheaded by the Castle Tower Reconstruction Promotion Council led to the construction of today’s tower in 1960. It was designed by Professor Minoru Ooka of the Yokohama National University Faculty of Engineering. With the completion of ancillary facilities in 1961, the reconstructed castle tower opened as the Matsumae Castle Museum.
