Travel Guide - Fukuoka Castle Ruins (Maizuru Park)

InformationInformation

Fukuoka Castle was originally completed in 1608 by Kuroda Nagamasa, the first lord of Fukuoka Domain. Some Yagura turrets, Otemon main gate, stone walls and moat of the castle still remain.
Maizuru Park is around the castle ruin and is one of the best spots to view cherry blossoms in Fukuoka City. A wide variety of cherry blossoms bloom spectacularly in March and April with the Fukuoka Castle ruins in the background. There is an observation deck in the park and you can overlook the landscape of Fukuoka City from there.
