This castle does not have much of the structure left, but is surrounded by a big park with a lake whi was good to spend a couple of hours enjoying it.

This castle offers photo opportunities to capture an interesting piece of samurai history and culture. Beautiful stone structures to create a magnificent castle. It’s symbolic and proud.

Based on reviews and other readings, I expected the castle ruins to be small and unimpressive. When coming here and actually walking around, I found the remains to be the complete opposite. I walked here from Ohori Park, once during the day and again at...More

For the most part, all that remains of the castle are walls. There is one turret and one building. It is otherwise a pleasant but unremarkable urban park.

The ruins it selves are not very impressive and large, but nice to visit if you are in the neighbourhood. From the top you have a nice overview over a big part of Fukuoka. For visiting you must climb stairs and a steep hill, so...More
