  • We have been driving this time from the city of Fukuoka to the Museum of the Hubbard. The city gate is not too high to get out of the shoes before entering the museum. Because children are interested in Show, they use the ear tube to hear introductions. Although the museum has a small area, it is worth a trip to introduce rich content.

  • "Saigo no matter ' in relation to Ryotaro Shiba's"Tobu GA gotoku"once I started reading the saga rebellion so intrigued in the saga Castle visits. Admission & staff in the parking lot at the point is impeccable, but descriptions of the saga rebellion was disappointing in chronology.

  • Before entering the city, you have to wear a large door, and then the museum is in front of you, this is Japan's largest tatami history museum, in front of the museum to get rid of shoes. The centre's auditorium can also be used as a lecture hall. In addition to the introduction of the Hubbard City of Shiyo in the push of the new role of the Meiji, the most important is that the museum is free.

  • It is a beautiful Museum with the history of the saga clan built on the saga castle-ruins. There is a statue of Nabeshima Naomasa neared, led the saga clan during the upheaval of the Meiji era from the end of Edo period. Imagine masterpiece is poured much of the manpower for construction of the wall and farther for care. In the stone wall of the beautiful silhouette worth looking at is. Also, look at the back side of the stone wall and observe the back side of the stone is different from the table of interesting.
