Fukuoka Castle Remains, Fukuoka

(2.9/5 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.
