First we went to Matsumae Castle Park for lunch.  I got to see beautiful Castle while taking lunch with everyone. Its really good experience for me. After finished lunch, we got to go inside the Castle for sightseeing. For entering the Castle every people need pay about 300 yen. Then we continue our journey to Matsumae Koryu no Satozukurikan one of our main goal. Our activities in Matsumae was Fishing, cooking together with local people, trying yukata and finally sport competition (table tennis).
