    Unlike other Japanese castles that were reconstructed/rebuilt, Fukuoka Castle in the present day is just a ruin.  In its place is Maizuru Park with an athletic stadium, soccer field, and baseball field.  There are still some of the original Fukuoka Castle structure standing; however, the majority of the castle has decayed or fallen apart over the years.

    The original castle was built in 1601 and completed over 7 years.  Of the 47 guard towers, the Tamon Turrent, Kinen Turrent, and Shiomi Turret can still be seen today.

    The castle was built on a hill and even though the buildings are no longer there, you can still take in the awesome views of Fukuoka City from where Tenshu Tower used to be.

    Our Recommendations for Buying Sashimi Online

    When we have a sudden craving for sashimi we usually buy from our local Japanese supermarkets. If you don't have a reliable shop to purchase quality sashimi nearby, we would recommend buying from Catalina Offshore online. They've been in business for over forty years and all the sashimi products we've tried from them are outstanding. The products we love are the saku cut tuna, hamachi loin, and all types of salmon. Disclosure: We earn a small percentage commission from your purchase of products linked to Catalina Offshore. Catalina Offshore Products banner with salmon
