InformationInformation

Saga Castle History Museum is the largest wooden restoration of a castle in Japan (2,500 square meters). The building of the museum was originally a part of Saga Castle's main palace constructed by Nabeshima Naomasa in 1838. Inside the building, you can see the 45-meter long corridor with Tatami mats and 320-tatami mat large hall.
The exhibits will make you understand that Saga played a important role in modernizing Japan. Though almost all the buildings were destroyed during the Saga Revolt in 1874, Shachi-no-mon gate and some stone walls still remain.
