(130+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • Did not know most of the saga clan clan here until the exhibit is interesting for exhibits that would interest as clean enough but I have no sense of history. Saga-Han did was a talented clan good steamers and cannons made science and technology. Want drama to be perfect.

  • Different from the goes image of castles in Japan. History Museum introduces the man produced the science and technology of the saga clan and restore the honmaru Palace was doing politics here, no Castle, who led the late Edo and Meiji period, the saga has become. There is no admission fee but it's awesome.
