(4.2/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Feel the glory of the last days of Tokugawa shogunate at Saga Castle History Museum, a faithful reconstruction of an Edo period castle. Get a close-up view of replica canons and enjoy a free guided tour in English. 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.
