Karatsu Castle was originally built in 1608, with the materials of demolished Nagoya Castle. The castle is also called “Maizuru (Dancing Crane) Castle” since its shape looks like a crane with spread out wings. The current Tenshukaku donjon was constructed in 1966 as a tourist facility. It has a observation deck on top of the building and visitors can enjoy the panoramic view of Karatsu City and Genkai Sea.
