Chapter 298: Fukuoka Castle Ruins (福岡城跡)


Fukuoka Castle Ruins, 2018.

I enjoy visiting castles, temples and shrines. It always feels very special and magical with so much meaningful history to its existence. I wondered off to check out the Fukuoka Castle Ruins. Located in the middle of Maizuru Park, almost a 10-15 min walk from Ohori Koen Subway Station. As history goes, this was the biggest castle in Kyushu, but at present it is pretty much in ruins due to the Meiji Restoration. In Spring the area is  lavished in cherry blossoms.
