Fukuoka Castle Remains, Fukuoka

3.3
Perched on Fukusaki Hill in the downtown area, Fukuoka Castle Remains offers a scenic walk in wooded Maizuru Park, with the Naka River forming a natural moat. Once the largest castle in Kyushu, spanning 47,000 sq m (505,900 sq ft) and featuring 47 turrets, this early Edo-period complex was completely torn down during the Meiji restoration, as it symbolize the unwanted feudal past. Only ruined walls, some turrets, and a few restored gates remind visitors of its past magnificence. Visit the small museum documenting the history of the castle, whose remains can be reached by foot from Ohori Koen station.

  • It is very far from the railway station and it is necessary to take a bus to reach it, and because of this, the park is very quiet and can appreciate the ruins of the city of Fukuoka. The park is so big that it takes one to two hours to complete.

  • Even though Fukuoka Castle, Castle and castle remains large turret. Most are only a stone wall. Little remains to be seen. In March at the end of the Golden weather, blossom was crowded with worshipers.

  • It's a nice place to get some fresh air and a decent view of Fukuoka city. If you are coming as a tourist, then don't expect an actual castle. It's really the remains of the castle grounds with the large stone walls intact and a few smaller guard towers. The upper area often has events taking place that are fun to take the family or a date.
  • Ruins of a former castle. The remaining structure still provides a nice vantage point over the city.
  • It's more nice when Sakura season 💗
  • Nothing here to see but the foundation stones. It does have a great view of the city, though.
  • Area is really a ruin, nothing much to see in November. However, the view is really nice from the top of the 'watch tower'
