Description

The ruins of the Fukuoka Castle are found in the heart of the scenic Maizuru Park, adjacent to the popular Ohori Park. The Fukuoka Castle dates back to the 17th century in Edo Period when it was once the largest castle in Kyushu. Some of its walls, gates, guard towers and turrets can be witnessed even at present. The area is much-loved for its walking trails and picturesque surroundings that provide the perfect atmosphere to spend a few leisurely hours. The best time to visit the castle ruins is during the months of March to April, when the cherry blossom trees of the park burst into full bloom. The castle can be reached in a few minutes' walk from the Ohori Koen Subway Station and is a delightful place to visit when sight-seeing in Fukuoka.
