Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

天守の建物はないので、なんとなく物足りなさはありますが、廃墟感があって歴史を感じます。 石垣に植物が絡みつく感じがいいですね。 天守台まで登れて見晴らしが良かったです。 特に入場料もかからないですし散歩するのにいいですね。I feel the history, but ruins there, but no Castle Tower building, so deliciously. It is a nice stone walls entangled plants. Helpful and make it to the tower. Then walk especially admission fee, I had to be nice.show original
