  • The wall still stands but that is about it. You get some sense of what it must have been like but not really worth going out of your way. 
  • 100 Castle castle stamps of the 97th's. And the Kagoshima Castle said. Leaving the moat and stone walls, the castle itself is not. Plays such as a library. After the bullet in the war was struck by the stone wall has plenty left. I think to visit and walk around. By the way, the stamp rally Castle near Kagoshima City walk of light station.

  • It is Kagoshima Castle, residence of the Shimazu clan. Looked like person spread the wings crane and Tsurumaru Castle, also known as called it, but now that Tsurumaru Castle is used in the official name. Say the ruins of the Castle Tower and the Tower remains, stone walls and moats. It did so first of all prepare castle with the Shimazu clan Tsurumaru Castle's donjon heijo-Kyo. Grounds were surrounded by a stone wall that is now history material Central dawn Pavilion (castle ruins) and Prefectural Library, Museum of art and Museum (full track) has been built. Even the private school mark of Saigo in the stone walls of the ramparts, countless left marks of bullets during the Seinan war. Behind the castle is the final battle of the Satsuma rebellion, in the now famous as tourist attractions has become a shooting spot of Sakura-jima. Saigo prosperous bronze statue of Saigō Takamori end around. Also located downtown Kagoshima tenmonkan area in say, so access is good.
