4.2
Feel the glory of the last days of Tokugawa shogunate at Saga Castle History Museum, a faithful reconstruction of an Edo period castle.

You will learn about the various architectural styles used to create the castle's wooden buildings and enjoy a neat exhibition of scrolls and screen paintings. Home of the orator of Hagakure, a practical and spiritual guide for warriors, the castle is one of the largest wooden reconstructions in Japan, documenting the end of the Edo period before modernization. Wear a pair of socks to fully enjoy spacious tatami rooms, as you must take your shoes off to enter.

  • This is a big and splendid building in the premises of the saga Castle. Admission is free of charge. Hotel is very wide, and was so impressed. Hall was especially spectacular sight to see. ☆ has exhibited a lot of material about the saga of the bakumatsu and Meiji Restoration, to study local volunteer guides who carefully explain me, I was happy. It is recommended for visits during the saga sightseeing spot.
