  • Nabeshima's promoted, and not shown little history of the ryūzōji clan, and historical documents. It is a shame. Guide to those who explained kindly.

  • Unlike the honmaru Palace of the Lords a plain building. Gorgeous can convince you it's disappointing if you image of luxury, in choshu Toi created by searching the most recent late Tokugawa period's strongest male clan of nagadohi of saga Castle. I think he gave birth to the "Hagakure" locality.

  • Guide with the knowledge her father arrived much, had a fun time. May have been because it was quite earnest, slightly out. Guide was ratings this good reason is. Situation was explained and appropriate knowledge. Did stimulate the desire to learn. Exhibition venue is honmaru Palace was created for. You remain the architectural drawing, old buildings and inflated as the Foundation is built. There were many places to see.
