I’ll admit, I must have overlooked the word “ruins” when researching prior to going here because I was actually looking for a castle. Hahaha, oops. Sad to say, it has been almost completely torn down! It’s basically just a few ruined walls and some turrents, but it’s a nice little park to walk around and you can also see a view of Fukuoka from the look out.
