Fukuoka Castle Remains, Fukuoka

(3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Fukuoka Castle Remains part of your personalized Fukuoka itinerary using our Fukuoka vacation builder.

  • Was a castle? Fukuoka Castle, still wrapped in mystery. castle tour of virtual reality is a must-see, with iPad (book I) Kuroda kanbe, the tour can enjoy the Castle Nagamasa parent-child social development

  • It was so cold weather, but really satisfied. good to walk. and the view at the top, it was really amazing. You don't need to go another place to see city view. I recommend go here at Spring. 
  • National road walk from Nakasu, arrived. Not enough to enjoy and not preparing said I say from experience around historic sites all over the place and I realized. Kuroda kanbe Yukari is insufficient information that the Castle alone. Only the thoughts that otherwise end up in Castle Park may have. After the evening a little darker side as is? More Crow.
