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.

  • Around the Castle and runs the Metro, and close to the major road located in the pretty town. The appearance of the castle is no longer nearly as stone walls and watchtowers can eyes. A small exhibit room describing the history of the Kuroda clan close to where more could be learned about history.

  • While admiring the splendid stone walls in the history of the Kuroda is heyday. Since a few years ago was in the NHK Taiga drama maybe consciousness is gone. History is not required, but it may age differently and thinks "if I had. You can and climb the stairs to the top along the stone walls overlooking the fine city of Fukuoka and Hakata. Guests can pamper themselves in the good mood.

  • During the Edo period was the residence of the Kuroda clan of Fukuoka. We lost many buildings such as the Castle, the large stone walls, and you can watch tower and gate was reconstructed and restored. Recommend a good vantage point and climb up to the top because it is free. Korokan historical Museum ruins to visit together.

  • 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'
  • Traditional Japanese Castle, mostly ruins but some towers and the wall are intact, nestled in a nice park.
  • Had a lovely time wandering around. There weren't many people around and it was generally fun to explore :)
  • It is hypothesised back in the day this castle was quite grand and beautiful, but now all that remains is the sloping stone walls that served as a foundation and to lift the Castle above the ground as a form of security. Part of the turrets that made up part of the castle remain, but the majority of the Castle is no longer there. If you are already walking through Ohori Park where the castle is located, then perhaps take a walk about the grounds, and if you've got energy in your legs to walk up to the top of the stone you'll get a lovely view of Fukuoka, but if not, then there is not much to see of the castle anymore.
